I haven’t posted in a while. But now I have a fancy phone so I can tumbl all the time! Starting with this wonderful song.
It’s really easy to read an inspiring story and get motivated to live that kind of life. It’s an entirely different battle to actually make that happen.

Quick Update: I did a half marathon on Sunday. 1:44:30. Not breaking any records, but it’s a vast improvement from my DVD-return nightmare a few months back. That guy in the middle, Daniel, is amazing, and is running the Auckland Marathon in a few weeks to raise money for Tony McClean Nepal Trust. He ran sub 1:33!

What do all of those issues have in common? Inequality or injustice. The universal truth behind the Invisible Children movement is that all human beings on this planet have fundamental and equal value—period. They should be protected against the most extreme forms of injustice, wherever that happens—period. We think the world is small enough now that we can apply that value all over the planet. Maybe resources are limited but I don’t think they’re finite.
