5 human rights tragedies you can help stop right now

Online activism has drawn criticism for making a lot of noise without the ability to create real change. But charges of slacktivism aren’t always fair: A robust online conversation can educate and inspire change. 

So how do we actually impact the situations that garner our outrage online? Your best bet is to donate to a cause, but with so many campaigns out there, it is sometimes to difficult to work out which one will actually make a change on the ground.

Life is so beautiful that death has fallen in love with it, a jealous, possessive love that grabs at what it can. But life leaps over oblivion lightly, losing only a thing or two of no importance, and gloom is but the passing shadow of a cloud…

Dare I say I miss him? I do. I miss him. I still see him in my dreams. They are nightmares mostly, but nightmares tinged with love.

I still cannot understand how he could abandon me so unceremoniously, without any sort of goodbye, without looking back even once. That pain is like an axe that chops at my heart.

It’s important in life to conclude things properly. Only then can you let go. Otherwise you are left with words you should have said but never did, and your heart is heavy with remorse.

So…this happened.

!!

Apparently the scientist involved was a creationist who failed to explain the possible reason for the preservation if the tissue sample. Instead, he made an unscientific assumption that dinosaurs lived just a few thousand years ago.
