Climb for Peace with Justice 

Consider supporting my climb to the summit to Mt. Rainier in Washington state? I’m doing it to challenge myself, my body, my soul. It also will help raise funds for Lutheran Volunteer Corps. DON’T STOP READING HERE!

Lutheran Volunteer Corps places young volunteers with nonprofits around the country, including places like 9to5 and the Urban Ecology Center in Milwaukee; Chicago Community Loan Fund; Public Justice Center in Baltimore; and the Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota in St. Paul. Volunteers like me spend a year working full-time at our placements, helping to contribute to the success and longevity of these organizations. If you need a point of comparison, this is much like what individuals in Americorps do.

If you can contribute, I would really appreciate it. None of this money goes to the church. Instead, all of it goes to support volunteers as we journey through our year - for some of us, the most challenging year of our lives. If you have any questions, happy to answer them!

Zoe Saldana for L'Oreal (x)
"Being a former dancer, classical dancer, it informed me as a human being just in terms of the grace I guess. Ballet is a very graceful form of art. You also become very aware of your body, and your mind and your body is working in conjunction. That kind of helps you in acting as well."

Mongolia's 13-Year-Old Eagle Huntress 

The eagles are not bred in captivity, but taken from nests at a young age. Female eaglets are chosen since they grow to a larger size – a large adult might be as heavy as seven kilos, with a wingspan of over 230cm. After years of service, on a spring morning, a hunter releases his mature eagle a final time, leaving a butchered sheep on the mountain as a farewell present. “That’s how the Kazakh eagle hunters make sure that the eagles go back to nature and have their own strong newborns, for the sake of future generations,” Svidensky says.

Wonderful wonderful.

In the U.S., a Quick Walk to the Store Is a Rare Thing Indeed 

You’re cooking dinner. You realize you’re missing a key ingredient – garlic for the pasta, let’s say, or lettuce for your salad. Something without which you can’t get the meal on the table. How long would it take you to walk to a store where you can buy it?

Let’s talk about peanut butter.
