“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?” - RuPaul - - - - - - - - - - - “if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - John F. Kennedy - - - - - - - - - - - - “Imagine finding someone you love more than anything in the world, who you would risk your life for but couldn’t marry. And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Must Watch: Go Beyond the Cover

What an absolutely amazing video.  I would have never thought this guy was who he was until I saw the makeup artists at work.  I want to say so much about this video, but can't because I want my readers to see it before making their own judgement.  Goes to say, "How do you judge a book by it's own cover?" Right?  Oh, and the music is great too!

By The Year 2050...

As I read up and share with you information about our world population, I've never really discussed overpopulation.  There's no doubt about it, we're growing at an alarming rate, and this plays a huge part on our ecosystem - the statistics and numbers are astonishing.  Earlier, we calculated what number we were in the world's population when we were born, we've looked at statistics as if the world were a village of 100 people, and we've looked at a video explaining how we got big so fast.

With the 7 billionth person born, check out Lapham's Quarterly, A magazine of history and ideas.  On their "Future" issue, they laid out a map (above) indicating the "very real" changes the Earth will undergo by the year 2050.  It's pretty amazing.  Check out these very real changes by clicking on the map.

The Joys of Being a Parent: Father & Daughter Dance

I always tell Ryan that whenever we get married, there are several songs and performances I want us to do during the ceremony and/or reception.  And seeing this, just made my day even brighter.  

A father and daughter share a dance medley together and it's absolutely fantastic.  This is definitely one of the joys of being a parent.
