A world that focuses on e-mails on Anthony Weiner's laptop while children in Aleppo perish in schools and makeshift hospitals is a world that holds little for me. Let me restate that:

This is my world. Your world. Our world. Men with silk ribbons tied 'round their neck, women in pantsuits and pearls scratching and clawing for power, attention and gold- not so much. It's the culture that I dismiss. 

Our priorities are wrong. As long as people are hungry, as long as folks are sick, as long as animals are mistreated and injustice is everywhere, there is a world that needs fixing. The world, itself, needs fixing. How can we allow the destruction of our planet for men to make money?

Stand up. Love. That's where the real power is.
