Back to the theme

The mantra of my blog is "think big." I've tried to provide content from my life that has inspired me to think bigger and hopefully package it in a form that inspires others likewise. The purpose of this post is to provide an anti-mantra so that readers perhaps understand what I would like readers to not do. See below.

I find it so funny when someone tells me that they are protesting one thing or another in their life because they don't agree with it. While I can see where they are coming from (i.e. something displeases me so I'm not going to support it), and I even think it is a good thing that we somehow fight evil, I hope that we realize just how interconnected the world is these days. Like my vegetarian friends that don't eat meat because they can't stand the thought of killing animals. Idealistic? I guess. But what about all of those living breathing plants that we brutally mutilate with every appetizing bite?
