22 Years ago today, this man’s life perished.
I never met him, I never knew him, but this man has completely changed the way I look at the world, and I thank him every day for that.
Inadvertently, he taught me how to look past societies unkind growth, and focus on real beauty of this world.
Thank you Mr. Chris McCandless for changing my life for the better.
Rest in paradise Supertramp.

If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal,-that is your success.
"Stand for something or fall for anything" the things we are doing are bigger than the mike brown situation and I want people to understand that. It’s about the racially charged circumstances of many blacks being murdered by police. This isn’t new we know it but it’s our job as a generation to try and change things for the next. We all got little brothers sisters and family we don’t want to fear the people that have to protect us. It’s about how we treat each other. Educating ourselves, getting out and voting in local elections to get people in office that care about our rights as well. It’s about not judging each other but joining each other. Don’t disregard the potential of a person because how they look or where they live or how the act. Malcolm X was a criminal before he was a leader understand that! So share with everyone the vision of a America that doesn’t treat us like a unwanted dinner guess. We are humans. We are kings and queens and we have to teach each other that because the system won’t. You don’t have to come out and march in the hot sun I get it but do whatever you can to uplift your fellow black people and get change going. Don’t get comfortable yet. We haven’t reached the goal. Obama in office don’t mean much if on the flip side we are getting murdered in the streets and systemically imprisoned for crimes others walk for. It’s bigger than us.
Aftermath of the Mike Brown riots in Saint louis.
..Literally within 10 minutes of my house.
Hundreds of protesters gathered at a suburban St Louis police station on Monday demanding murder charges against an officer who shot to death an unarmed black teenager over the weekend.
The largely peaceful protests took place after a night of rioting when demonstrations over the death of Michael Brown, 18, turned violent.
