This was pretty awesome! In short… THESE are the types of videos that I would like to create. It is hard to argue facts. If we can figure out how to turn PhD publications into 3 minute videos like this, I believe we could see changes in social justice policies and society very quickly. Long publications are still needed, but what good is knowledge if the people who need it most do not have access to it, or cannot understand it? Along with these videos, I would also like to find ways to allow undeserved individuals (both in and out of the criminal justice system) to tell their own stories. One day closer.
On Monday, March 10, 2014 I was able to hear United States Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor speak about her life and brand new memoir My Beloved World at the University of Washington’s HUB Ballroom. The event was packed. She gave us many words and lessons to live by and showed us what a world class leader looks like. Although I’m already halfway through her book I really wanted a signed copy. They ran out of copies, but guess who’s face showed up the morning after in the Seattle Times! 😉
What a complicated issue… Here you have North Korea, a country that doesn’t even have enough resources to feed their own people (so we are told).Then you have the United States who in most accounts takes what they want and invades countries based on resources that they refuse to give up. Well… North Korea, last time I checked doesn’t really have any resources that the US would want. The UN can only “sanction” N. Korea, and since the US has bases all over Asia it would only make sense that China would continue to hold N. Korea as an ally.
