As close as you will ever be to a nuclear explosion
THIS IS FUCKING TERRIFYING
No thank you.
I interviewed a woman who is terminally ill. ‘So,’ I tried to delicately ask, ‘What is it like to wake up every morning and know that you are dying?’ ‘Well,’ she responded, ‘What is it like to wake up every morning and pretend that you are not?’

"My favorite for two reasons:
- Keeps me in check. The world is not obligated to care, you can’t always expect that people will, especially when they have their own things and problems and hurt that you are not obligated to care about either. Don’t expect too much from anyone.
- The world is not obligated to care, yet sometimes, it still does. And that’s beautiful to me.”
We’re content with losing.
I know there’s not much I can do right now to change things.. But I can’t just ignore how fucked things are; regardless of how helpless I feel against it all.
Maybe it wont be me personally to solve these issues.. But I must be a part of the influence that brings a solution, or atleast a broader awareness to some of the huge problems being over-looked in our world today.
Ive always had a problem with putting issues that arent my own on my shoulders.. Well this time, I shamelessly hold the burden.
Its easy to sit back and say, “Thats just the way it is”, especially when youre not experiencing the affects directly.. But if everybody thought this way always; we might have been extinct a long time ago.
I had a conversation with some people about the seriousness of Fukushima and media interests.. being that we live on the west coast where the affects are starting to become actual health issues, I expected atleast SOME expression of concern. Instead, the conversation was blown off entirely with jokes about something totally irrelevant. And to think, this is only one of the numerous issues being kept low key.
This is clearly a heated rant.. But.. We’ve seen it happen before.. Where devastating things were happening right infront of our eyes.. and it wasnt until they became un-fixable catastrophes that we began to pay attention and spread awareness.
Even if I dont live to see a monumental change in the way we spread positivity, oneness and compassion.. and even though I dont believe I know 100% of the truth.. I just hope before i go I can open some eyes to look beyond being content with rolling over as we senselessly destroy everything.
We can do better. ((+)) <3
A man admittedly followed and killed an innocent teenager, and was declared not guilty.
States are passing laws allowing guns in public schools.
Women are losing their reproductive rights at an increasingly alarming rate.
Riots are tearing through the streets in cities all over the world.
College tuition keeps rising, sending a generation into debt as soon as they are entering the adult world.
Education funds keep getting slashed.
Privacy no longer exists.
Corporations now have the same rights as people, and the funds to actually protect them.
Through loopholes, many U.S. Corporations pay a lower tax rate than middle class families.
States are now passing more voter ID laws and similar laws that only affect the lower class.
The corporate giant, Monsanto, has pretty much purchased and bribed its way into every grocery product on the shelf, resulting in food becoming less and less like, well, food. There are reasons Cancer rates are getting worse.
Likewise, Monsanto is making sure small American farmers are ran out of business. Also, their constant pesticide use is killing bees and other insects, causing dire environmental issues.
The mass media is more concerned with pop culture and trends, than the real issues the world is facing.
Human population is ever growing, and at rapid rates. It can’t just continue this way.
We have put so much trash in giant landfills all over our world and in our oceans. We are killing our planet.
By planet you mean we are killing ourselves.
Can we also pay attention to the fact that there aren’t just political problems going on???
I mean, seriously, I have been trying to tell everyone, BUT NO ONE IS EVEN REBLOGGING THE ARTICLES THAT COULD SAVE A LIFE
While all this is happening, the Pacific Ocean is being contaminated by not just trash, but Radiation.
There was a leak in the Fukushima power plant that has now poisoned the entire Pacific Ocean.
Some think that oh, maybe it will go away with time. Sure, it will, in about 16 million years. Yes, you read that right. Due to the long half life of iodine-129, the whole ecosystem of the Pacific Coast will be contaminated pretty much forever.
Here is the radiation levels in the ocean.
Everyone needs to wake up.
The government needs to be set straight. They were hiding this information so that people don’t panic. Well, now everyone’s gonna die and not know why.
Shit is going down, and we need to make sure EVERYONE knows EVERYTHING that is happening in this place we call home.
Holy fucking shit
fukushima is one of the scariest things going on and it’s literally getting less attention than that real houswives couple who are going to prison.
SPEAK UP, STOP BEING SO AFRAID OF YOUR GOVERNMENT. THEY DOT CARE ABOUT US.
This government is run by money and corruption, we can’t expect them to give a shit
