Hi everyone, another week goes by, and this week, the content around #BlackLivesMatter has become deeper and more reflective. There are people across whole swathes of society thinking about racism in a much deeper way. It feels like real change is possible and a much higher percentage of the American public want change to happen as well. Let’s keep the momentum up.
However, it’s not just racism in America that is an issue. All countries and all regions are starting to ask themselves the right questions and attempting to see beyond their filters. This gives me hope that a global movement has begun, where we deeply question the underlying foundations of our societies that cause so many to suffer, live without dignity and never have the opportunity to break the cycle.
I truly believe that everyone on this planet has magic in their soul and I want to live in a world where all have the right to release it. You too?
COVID19 has not gone away, and we are seeing it take off across America, as well as a resurgence in Hong Kong, but there was great news, when New Zealand declared itself a Virus-Free zone. Decisive leadership matters right now.
And of course, the environment. Please spend some time on the content below. There is some very alarming news being released by the scientific and climate community. We have a unique opportunity to rebuild our world anew.
If you read this information, you will see that we have no time to lose. We have a unique opportunity and we must all rise up and make it happen. The future of our species and all life on planet earth depends on real action now.

Please contribute to charities and help in your local market if you can. There are many ways to help humanity right now.
Content to read
I’ve decided to split the content into topics. Maybe it will make it easier to find what you want to read? There’s always a mix of topics, so let me know if breaking it up helps you to digest it? As always, no opinions, just sharing the knowledge to help my community navigate the Infodemic.
A huge thanks to all of the people in my network who create their own content and share awesome information on the topics I care about.
