Did you wake up one day and realized that you weren’t the most valuable living being on the planet? No, neither have I, but I am making a real effort at getting there.
Maybe you can’t change the world, but you can change a piece of it for at least twenty minutes and if you changed twenty minutes and another person changed twenty minutes, possibly all of you together could have an impact on someone’s day.
If you believe in that kind of concept and you think patchouli smells good here’s a list of your things to do.

On July 17, 1998, the nations of the world established the International Criminal Court (ICC), the first and only permanent international criminal tribunal established to hold individuals accountable for genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes. These crimes include the use of child soldiers, widespread rape and mutilation used as weapons of war.
