    Nature Enjoy the Sunrise/Sunset
    Father Thomas Berry says, "... our primary purpose is celebration. Celebration of the dawn and the sunset and the different seasons of the year is a religious ritual, a way in which humans can establish their integral relationship with the universe, with the planet Earth." What is your response to Berry's assertion?

    How does food sovereignty address the complex transition from localized food systems to modern global food systems?

    Not to make a joke but I actually saw a documentary of there rotisserie chicken of Costco lol. It was how they don't gain profit out of there chicken because of how cheap it is. the price is $4.99 but it takes them more money for them to buy the chicken and do all the stuff that they do idek what they do but they do. I'm going to use the Costco close to the Tacoma mall because that's where I go lol. So this is there trick, you enter the store and for you to go to the chicken you have to pass hundreds of products so they deceive you and make you want to get things that you didn't even know you wanted like for example a 14 yr old buys a corkscrew, like why. And then you reach the chicken you get 1 or 2 and then to get to the cash register you have to pass other 300000 products and a bunch of books that no one gets like the auto biography of Hillary Clinton. so yeah. thank you for reading this bible page!!

    Educator Stephanie Kaza advises her students to focus on what they care about most when addressing the enormity of ecological problems. Is there a specific area you feel particularly called to work on?

    to be honest I didn't know what the 7 principles where until I made some research and now I'm filled with knowledge.
    •  Plan ahead and prepare
    • Travel and camp on durable surfaces
    • Dispose of waste properly
    • Leave what you find
    • Minimize campfire impacts
    • Respect wildlife
    • Be considerate of other visitors
    plan ahead and prepare: actually that is pretty smart to make a plan on what your going to do because if you don't have a plan your just going to find yourself just sitting on a rock
    Dispose of waste properly: yeah I hate it when i see trash all over the forest its just sad
    Leave what you find: yes this is also really smart because like I don't go to the forest to find a dead bird and take it home with me so yes I'm leaving it there
    Respect wildlife: YES always animals are pretty except Michael's iguana, that thing scares me
    Be considerate of other visitors: yes I see why you should be considerate but there is also a limit if I see them like idk kicking a rock, punching the air then ill let them be. But if I see them littering,  or destroying the forest then that's when you have to stop them but not mean just say "HEY YOU NERD STOP THAT" simple

    yesterday I went to Safeway and I saw some pretty good stuff mostly junk food but its because of that and also that I'm always sitting down lol, so I took some time to think instead of begging my parents to buy me this like a little kid, what can could we do with that money that would benefit us. And then when I was done thinking we where already at our car.
  • Reflection Question
    Water Eco-friendly Gardening
    What are the most prominent water concerns in your area? Examples include drought, flooding, pollution, access, security, and privatization.

    Scotty Miranda (FIRE TRUCK) 1/13/2021 12:17 PM
    In the area where I live the biggest concern for water would just be people leaving the faucet on even though there not using it, but as much as I would like to do something about it I unfortunately cant because people wont consider there actions until its to late, Its silly to me because we complain that the world is being destroyed but we don't do anything about it, most of us carry this hypocrisy, but don't get me wrong there are a lot of wonderful people out there (like my team) that try and keep the world we live in clean.

    What are some of the barriers to sharing economies? What is your plan for supporting or creating one in your community?

    So I guess I can consider "support" to be me doing volunteer work. I used to go every Sunday to this food bank in Steilacoom (We Love Steilacoom, Food pantry) its a community church. i have liek more than 30 hours of volunteer time. (NOT TO FLEX OR ANYTHING) but I have to beat Hannah Pulido she's leaving me face first in the dirt she has so many points lol

    By limiting myself to less less than 8 hours a day, (In this case I consider work to be school because I don't work, I'm not cool like that, yet) It really gives me more time to spend with my family or just to relax without having to worry about work.
