This picture captures an important moment for me. A few days ago I flew me drone next to a waterfall. The waterfall changed the air pressure in the area and flew me drone right up a 50m tree. The next day I hired someone to help me rescue my drone. Thru that man I met Emanuel( the guy in the picture). He was supposed to climb up the tree to look for my drone. When we picked him up from he's house it really hit me how fortunate I am. Emanuel lives in a little one room cabin in the lower part of the town with he's wife,mother and little baby boy. Seeing they're living conditions and experiencing there kindness really put me in place and realizing how lucky I am,not just to have the drone in the first place,but also to be able to pay someone to risk he's life in order to get it. It's really important for me to emphasize, Emanuel is not a person who anyone should pity. He's a hard working man who wakes up everyday and does whatever is necessary to provide for he's family. But Emanuel didn't win the "zip code lottery" like most of us.
When we got to the forest it started to rain. We looked till we were soaking wet and then we looked for shelter from the rain. In the picture you can se Emanuel still looking while we hide from the rain.
After this moment I decided I don't want him to climb. The drone is not worth he's safety and we decided to go back home.
So after looking in the pouring rain,after spending a lot of money to try to find it and after we failed and couldn't find it, the thing I feel the most is #blessed .

Today I went out for my mid distance run for the week. I got to thinking about what I was appreciative of while on this run. It also made me realize that I need to be actively aware of my privileges. I ran on a trail by myself, with headphones blasting music, on a mostly empty trail, in the early morning, and I felt safe the whole entire time. I never felt the need to ask for a running buddy, I didn’t feel the need to wait for the trail to be busy. I didn’t turn down my music. I even kept both ear buds in. I acknowledge that as a white male that I have this privilege. I hope to be able to internally acknowledge this everyday. I also hope to work with others that don’t have this privilege so that we can empower them so that they are able to feel the same way I felt today.

I am afraid of being pregnant in Ireland. Because in that instance I give up my rights over my body and my healthcare.
.
I want to know that what happens with my medical care is MY choice if and when I need to make difficult decisions concerning my health.
.
I need that right to feel safe and seen and respected in my country.
.
I have seen how reticent and uncomfortable so many Irish people are about talking about women, their bodies and their lived experiences. This has shocked me.
.
I don’t believe in frightening or abandoning people when they are in crisis.
.
I believe that doctors should be allowed to talk to their patients about all ramifications to their health and well-being, openly, without fear of their own or their patients’ imprisonment.
.
I see now that demanding Irish women be martyrs, saints or superwomen and enshrining it in the constitution is misogyny.
.
If this is a situation you’ll never have to deal with, because of your age or because you’re a man, I encourage you to put yourself in their shoes.
.
Life is not clear cut and if you’re considering voting like it is you may need to check your privilege.
.
I’m putting X in the box marked YES tomorrow.

So apparently posting about white male privilege makes white males extremely angry..... Interesting #whiteprivilege #malepregnancy #whitemaleprivilege #interesting #bigotry #conservativecrybabies #checkyourprivilege #ihavebeencalledworse #colourfulinsults

(via @femmesupremacy) Be sure that as a healer you aren't committing microaggressions against people, or appropriating cultures that do not belong to you. ESPECIALLY to white healers out there, you MUST do the research or risk being complicit in oppression.
It's also important to keep in mind that some folks *do* need medications, and some folks experience various symptoms of mental illness that don't allow them control over their brain as neurotypical people do. Remember that sometimes someone can't "just calm down" or take a walk in the woods/exercise/eat differently/whatever to cure their depression. .

Slavery with extra steps. Keep pushing for bans on any and everything you don't like (drugs, guns, etc.) People that beg Big Daddy Government to keep them safe, indirectly support mass incarceration.

Angola prison, the maximum security state penitentiary of Louisiana is the biggest prison in America. Built on the site of a former slave plantation, the 1,800-acre penal complex is home to more than 5,000 prisoners, 85 percent of whom will die there. Also known as THE FARM, Angola took its name from the homeland of the slaves who used to work its fields, and in many ways still resembles a slave plantation today. 80% of the prisoners are African-Americans and under the surveillance of armed guards on horseback, they still work fields of sugar cane, cotton and corn, for up to 16 hours a day.... #CheckYourPrivilege #WhitePrivilege #MassIncarceration #BlackLivesMatter #BLM #BanAssaultWeapons #BanAR15 #BanAllGuns #BanGuns #GunControl #GunControlNOW #GunReform #GunReformNOW #PrisonIndustrialComplex #WhatAboutTheChildren #ThinkOfTheChildren #CommonSenseGunLaws #CommonSenseGunReform #Everytown #MomsDemandAction #MarchForOurLives
