Daily Inspiration: Protect Our Girls From Sexual Assault

Sexual assault has been flooding the news outlets with murmurs about high profile figures such as Judge Kavanaugh and Bill Cosby. Sexual assault is often hard to prove and difficult to prosecute unless it is reported immediately and evidence is readily available. Often times women opt not to report due to shame, fear or the mounting possible fall out.

In this video a teenager girl delivers a powerful spoken word poem about that transition from girl to woman and the unwanted situations one can find herself in. Sexualization of girls and women has always left them vulnerable to the vices of predators. As a society, we need to do more to protect our girls.

Daily Inspiration: Kids Feeding the Hungry

The issue of hunger across America and even the world is a monumental. One girl is doing her part to end it in her corner of South Carolina.

Katie’s Krops was inspired by a homework assignment. She was given seeds and asked to grow cabbage. To Katie’s surprise, it grew to be as large as 40 pounds. With that bounty she went on to feed over 200 people.

Since then she has used gardening as a tool to feed America’s hungry. Currently Katie’s Krops has over 100 gardens and has fed thousands of people.

Daily Inspiration: Get Outside and Enjoy Nature

How many hours of your life do you spend indoors? For many people it is almost all of it.

Today’s video was created by The Velux Group, a company that manufactures skylights. In this video (which reads almost like a commercial) the narrator explains the transitions we have made from nature to an indoor environment.

The downsides of living a life within walls include sickness and depression. Centuries of technological advancement afford us the luxury of remaining indoors, but we should also remember that a world exists out there. Get outside.

Daily Inspiration: Reforestation of the Amazon

The Amazon is the worlds largest rainforest. It spans over 2 million miles and provides a home for millions of people and various species of wildlife. Since the 1970’s the deforestation of the Amazon has spiraled out of control.

Humans have cleared significant areas of the forest to make room for crops and livestock, which in turn has serious consequences on the balance of our ecosystem.

A new initiative in Brazil is going to bring back 73 million trees to the Amazon. Reforestation is important to the survival of humans and the planet itself.
