In major cities worldwide, a small semi-truck drives into the town center. Its sides are clear, made of a stable glass-like substance. What's more surprising isn't the trailer's walls; its the contents: nasty, muddy, unclean water.
On top of the truck rides a team of volunteers, armed with loudspeakers. They remain silent as the truck pulls to the center of the plaza and parks. Crowds begin to gather. News crews are summoned, as reports of similar trucks world wide are… Continue

This is the banner I fight under.
This is the thing I fight against.
These are the horrors that happen every day.
An annual report by the US State Department on the human rights situation in Zimbabwe has revealed that ‘corrective rape’ against gay men and lesbians is on the increase.
Journalist Angus Shaw said the latest 50 page report compiled by the US Embassy in Harare gives emphasis to the harassment of the gay…

In my Mission 2 Learn post
, I shared information about One World, Everyone Eats. Not many responded to my alert about this amazing program, which saddens me.
I am now making an effort to volunteer at least once a week, as I can, at OWEE. My husband is volunteering 2-3 times a week as well.
With that, my ACT2 post would be done and over with. But I have one more thing to say. A… Continue

The death sleep of winter has slowly faded, Continue
the rigor of the ground loosens,
and the earth is once more reborn.
Like Mithras and Osiris,
reborn from death,
life returns again to the land,
springing up as the snow melts away.
As the soil warms and the days grow longer,
dew forms along new sprouts of grass,
bringing life back.

Hey all -
I apologize for my disappearance - I have simply been busy and sick, and too distracted to pay attention to Evoke. So I am behind!
I will be playing catch up. Thank you for your support. :)

I was stumped for hours on finding my "hero" to shadow. I went through the lists recommended by the mission, read through sites, but I just wasn't finding the spark. I wanted to find someone I could relate to in the social change I want to make - and I wasn't finding anyone.
Surely someone out there was focused on gender or sexual preference issues? Equality? Social norms? I love the environment, and I care about it and education and poverty and these other issues - but they weren't… Continue

As a paid writer, I've taken off in the video games field. Freelance writing about video games is my day job - upward to 60 hours a week, getting paid for reviewing games, doing guides, and posting news. It's a fun job, and I do enjoy it - but it's not what I want to spend my life writing about.
I've already mentioned my goal, my personal passion and project and part of what brought me to Evoke - advocacy for those with "alternative" sexual preferences and genders. This is "the big… Continue

Listen to the right people. Okay, so you probably don’t know what it’s like to carry fifty pounds of firewood on your head. Well, don’t pretend that you do. Talk to someone who has
done it. I believe that the key to innovation in international
development is truly understanding the problem, and using your
imagination is not good enough.
When my goal hit me - when I just "knew" what I wanted to do,… Continue
