“When we consider the founders of our nation: Jefferson, Washington, Samuel and John Adams, Madison and Monroe, Benjamin Franklin, Tom Paine and many others; we have before us a list of at least ten and maybe even dozens of great political leaders. They were well educated. Products of the European Enlightenment, they were students of history. They knew human fallibility and weakness and corruptibility. They were fluent in the English language. They wrote their own speeches. They were realistic and practical, and at the same time motivated by high principles. They were not checking the pollsters on what to think this week. They knew what to think. They were comfortable with long-term thinking, planning even further ahead than the next election. They were self-sufficient, not requiring careers as politicians or lobbyists to make a living. They were able to bring out the best in us. They were interested in and, at least two of them, fluent in science. They attempted to set a course for the United States into the far future — not so much by establishing laws as by setting limits on what kinds of laws could be passed. The Constitution and its Bill of Rights have done remarkably well, constituting, despite human weaknesses, a machine able, more often than not, to correct its own trajectory. At that time, there were only about two and a half million citizens of the United States. Today there are about a hundred times more. So if there were ten people of the caliber of Thomas Jefferson then, there ought to be 10 x 100 = 1,000 Thomas Jefferson’s today.

Where are they?

The pope is an “unlikely voice for the environment,” The Guardian

http://www.ecowatch.com/pope-francis-climate-change-1995225094.html

“We must not be indifferent or resigned to the loss of biodiversity and destruction of ecosystems, often caused by our irresponsible and selfish behavior,” he said. “Because of us, thousands of species will no longer give glory to God by their very existence …
We have no such right.”

#ItsOKToTalk

https-%2F%2Fblueprint-api-production.s3.amazonaws.com%2Fuploads%2Fcard%2Fimage%2F192604%2Fitsokaytotalk

While I am not one who has a mental illness, or has any leanings towards suicide, I post this to increase support and spread the word that we can talk up the discussion of what mental illness is, and how we can work to help those who need help the most. Especially combatting the idea that boys/men should just “man up” and “deal with it” without saying anything, “because that’s just not what guys do”. This grassroots social media campaign says what needs to be said: talk about it, don’t accept your circumstances as the status quo, find help, ask questions, don’t just suffer in silence. Do something to make it better.

Also, if you have ANY ideas about suicide, get help. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Don’t wait. Do it now. Find those who will listen. They are out there and ready to help you find your way. There is always a way to fix things without taking the ultimate step out.

“The need for a campaign addressing men’s mental health is undeniably dire. According to the World Health Organization, over 800,000 people die by suicide every year. Death by suicide accounts for an estimated 1.4 percent of all deaths globally, making it the 15th leading cause of death as of 2012. ” – +Mashable
