Thanks to Lorraine Murphy. This is what some of us would call a soft do0x. Soft or not, it is an important one.

Daniel Ghoukassian: Facebook photo Daniel Ghoukassian: would YOU pick this for your Facebook photo? He did. I thought it was a mug shot.

Do you know this man? Lucky you, the answer is probably “no.” Because, as it turns out, not a lot of people seem to know this man. The ones who do are presumably not too thrilled about it.

This man, Daniel (Dan) Simmon Ghoukassian, was just arrested and charged in relation to a series of broad-daylight sexual assaults that took place recently in the Oakridge area of Vancouver. Bail was set at $20,000, and as of Thursday, May 22 the suspect will be free to go about his business until his trial date of June 20, subject to as-yet undecided restrictions and of course the payment of bail.

Why do I love @Avaaz so much?

#Syria #EducationEven4Girls | These amazing girls is one example:
Yamama and her cousin Hayat are Syrian refugees, but they’re in school in part because our community raised $1 million in a challenge grant to donor governments to save Syria from a lost generation of children without education. We just got word that governments have matched us over 100:1!! UN Education Envoy Gordon Brown called our effort “magnificent” and “important in getting governments to give.”

But ofc teh answer  to my own q is simple. I love being part of a bigger world. Where small ppl can be big. I`m a small boy with thousands of friends on teh interwebz. Stretching four continents I actually make a difference. I get to be a small cog in teh big world. I get to take part in big events that change teh world – for teh better. How can I not love #Avaaz?

Malala_Yousafzai_1600983aTake #MalalaYousafzai for instance. She fought for education for girls in Pakistan and got shot in teh head by teh taliban for it. She is bigger than God. And I got to be a little part of telling teh world about her. She did not die. I did not die. I love it.

Blogging at 47 – lol

PP_collage_thumbI had fun creating a blog. I never was one to promote myself. I was right not to, I think. I have spent my life creating traffic for others, and actually did not understand how difficult it is – before now.

I reached like a dozen people or so in a week. Horrible. In some of my circles I would be called a faggot for even creating this. But I will try this for a little while longer. Just a little, cause I like that WordPress lets me distribute info across a lot of other platforms. Including teh groups and pages I admin on Facebook. =D
