If I can change the world:: I will never forget the day I used Facebook best.


I once chatted up with a cab driver on my way home, two years ago.

He asked me if I wanted to listen to his life story, and I thought why not, right? He told me he married young, separated after 10 years of unhappiness, and got left behind in the Philippines as his wife and his three children…

A real heart-warming read :)

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

Meet Irena Sendler (1910-2008)

She was a 98 year-old Polish woman at her time of death. During World War II, Irena worked in the Warsaw Ghetto as a plumbing/sewer specialist. She dedicated herself to  smuggle Jewish children out. Infants were carried in the bottom of the tool box she used and older children in a burlap sack she had in the back of her truck.

She also had a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto. The soldiers wanted nothing to do with the dog and the barking covered the kids’ and infants’ noises. Irena managed to smuggle out and save 2500 children during this time

She eventually was caught and the Nazis broke both her legs, arms and beat her severely. Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she smuggled out and in a glass jar buried under a tree in her backyard. After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived and reunited some of the families but most had been killed. She then helped those children get placement into foster family homes or adopted.

In 2007, Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize. She was not selected.

Al Gore won for presenting a slide show on Global Warming.

What Traveling Around the World Looks Like in 1 Minute 

Rick, Tim and Andrew, three ordinary guys, decided to take a trip of a lifetime: 11 countries in 44 days. 18 flights and 38,000 miles later they have three 1-minute videos showing what life is like around the world.

They recorded everything off two cameras and ended up with over a terabyte of footage which they cut, mixed and matched into an awesomely seamless blend of every notable place they’ve been.

They broke down their trip into three parts: Move, which shows them walking around, Eat, which shows the delectable food they ate, and Learn, which shows all the amazing things they did.

Thousands of random girls get reblogged on Tumblr for nothing other than being another pretty face.  This isn’t one of those posts.

This is a picture of Elisabeth Tronnes Lie.  She was among the 91 killed during the Norway shooting/bombing attacks on July 22nd, 2011. 

Here she is singing Shania Twain’s “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?”:

Please reblog this if you want to send positive thoughts to the countless friends and families of the victims from this brutal, senseless act.  Reblogging will help Elisabeth’s memory and the other victims live on.  Your help is needed because this isn’t getting much media attention.  Thank you.

“They that love beyond the world cannot be separated by it. Death cannot kill what never dies.
- William Penn

RIP Elisabeth Tronnes Lie
[March 9, 1995 - July 22, 2011]

jeez, she’s too young
