Any guesses on what may have happened to this guy?

"Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty, truth and compassion against injustice, lying, and greed. If people all over the world would do this, it would change the earth." - William Faulkner

"If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals." - J.K. Rowling

Do you have a favorite book or book series that you'd recommend? I read over 30 books last summer and I need some new ideas! Feel free to comment your favorites below!

DID YOU KNOW there are over 800 million hungry people worldwide? And at the same time, nearly 2/3 of American adults are overweight or obese?
.
Farmers produce enough food to feed every person on planet earth ~2,700 calories each day; so why are so many people going hungry?

The answer to this is pretty complicated, but it has a lot to do with our food choices and how those choices have shaped the global food system.

How do you feel about social media? Some say it's helped people stay connected, while others believe it's created a society where individuals feel more isolated and alone. Many of the studies that I've read recently have shown that the constant pressure to be perfect and online is overwhelming many individuals, and leading to higher rates of depression and anxiety. Do you think the pros outweigh the cons?

"Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I’m not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as I am in how you choose to live and give."

Not quite the sunset I was hoping for, but I managed to snag the reflection and a sunflare.

Where should I travel to next?

"The man who follows the crowd will usually get no further than the crowd. The man who walks alone is likely to find himself in places no one has ever been before.
Creativity in living is not without its attendant difficulties, for peculiarity breeds contempt. And the unfortunate thing about being ahead of your time is that when people finally realize you were right, they’ll say it was obvious all along. You have two choices in your life; you can dissolve into the mainstream, or you can be distinct. To be distinct, you must be different. To be different, you must strive to be what no one else but you can be..."

Crater Lake was AMAZING! Unfortunately, my phone didn't really pick up the depth of color in the lake, or the true contrast between the blue lake and the red in my shirt. Regardless, the views were incredible. If you've never been here before, I'd highly recommend it, just make sure you go later than May so that all the roads and hiking trails are open.

I stumbled upon this quote the other day, and felt compelled to share it; the fact that the quote came from Anne Frank makes it even more powerful. The world is a crappy place sometimes, but for every person impacting the world in a negative way, there are hundreds of people pushing for positive change.

Sometimes, you luck out and stumble upon a complete gem. After exploring the Tetons, I took a few (unintentional) detours and ended up in a location that was not a part of my intended route. I found a campsite in the dark and this was the view out of my car this morning. Not bad.

Did you know that if you spent two hours a day on your phone over the course of a lifetime (~75 years), you would be on it a total of 2,281 days (6.25 years). Crazy, right?
Have you ever been to Custer State Park in SD?
