Open your mind





Its time to promote peace! You remember hearing about the 70s? You know like all out flashy glitz and glam style, bell bottoms, crazy colors/prints, wide leg trousers, the works?! A time where the war was unpopular, and hippies would try to promote peace by protests and whatnot. Well...maybe its time some peace be promoted now. With all kinds of wars going on in the world (race, ethnicity, greed, power,etc.) we cannot chose to give a blind eye. In other words its time to learn a little more about what's going on. One major thing, more like ISSUE, is the genocide in Darfur. Its a battle of ethnicities and of oil and the government...its pretty bad. Children are being left parentless, there's starvation, etc. Before I continue on I'm going to be honest and say that I am no current-day hippie, off spreading the word to everyone I know and making big donations. But I know its important to know about what's going on in the world. And that is a great starter point for everybody, GETTING THE KNOWLEDGE!! Once you know you can then ACT. Poverty is also a big issue around the globe. Did you know that just by taking a few minutes to go online and give your "signature" to a letter to the government you can make a difference? Countries will be given financial aid so its citizens don't have to suffer. One.org is an organization that does this. And you don't have to pay to be a member, all they want is your pledge to help out those in need. You can also checkout savedarfur.org, its very informative about whats going on in Sudan. My main point though is that we should all just try and do what we can. I too will put forth a better effort into doing what I CAN in getting educated and helping those who need help. I think that it truly is up to all of us to do our part.

You're so right about Darfur and peace. Amnesty International have an album of John Lennon covers (U2, Christina Aguilera, Jack Johnson and loads and loads of others) out on iTunes at the moment to raise funds & awareness about Darfur - it's called Instant Karma, and I'd really recommend it!

Emily ♥ said...

You got so many comments!

People should pay more attention to the Genocide in Darfur! I wish I could do something to help.

On the lighter note...I want Jessica Alba's bag. Michelle Williams has the 2nd dress i think?
