The Reason. My Son.

My Son
6/18 11:24PM- My son is my life. I’m sitting with him on the bed, where I’m sure I’ll be for the rest of the night. As I sit here and look at him, I’m often overcome with such emotion that I feel paralyzed. The love is indescribable. The sorrow I feel for him, I can’t begin to express in written form. He’s an extremely happy kid yet I know he’s missed out on so much. I just want my son to be happy. I know he’s going to experience pain, anger, sorrow, etc. But I want contentment for him. I want him to enjoy life and to experience love, joy, and fulfillment.

Nature is the Answer. Always Has Been – Always Will Be.

Jack Herer, also known as ‘The Hemperor,’ offered a $100,000 challenge to the world to prove him wrong.

The Challenge: $100,000

If all fossil fuels and their derivatives, as well as trees for paper and construction, were banned in order to save the planet, reverse the greenhouse effect and stop deforestation; Then there is only one known annually renewable resource that is capable of providing the overall majority of the world’s paper and textiles; meet all of the world’s transportation, industrial, and home energy needs – while simultaneously reducing pollution, rebuilding the soil, and cleaning the atmosphere all at the same time…And that substance is – the same one that did it all before – Cannabis Hemp – Marijuana.

Sponsored by: H.E.M.P. (America), HANF HAUS (Germany), SENSI SEEDS/HASH MARIJUANA MUSEUM (Holland), and T.H.C., THE TEXAS HEMP CAMPAIGN (America) Visit Jack Herer’s website for more details:

If you can prove him wrong, you will be $100,000 richer. (Jack Herer – June 18, 1939 – April 15, 2010) Rest in peace, Sir. Your work and dedication will forever be admired by millions.

 

The reason Jack put such a large sum of money up in this challenge is because it’s impossible to prove him wrong – because he’s right. Each of the examples he gives in this challenge can be broken down into many subsections.

Where Did I Leave That Skeleton Key?

When a river floods due to an excess of rain, there is water on surrounding land that ultimately becomes a disruption for many creatures – as well as the lake itself. Life in these areas must now quickly adapt to this change or seek shelter until the water subsides – which, in turn, delays their life work. Even if it’s only a few hours.

If you pour a glass of lemonade into a cup and continue pouring after it has reached the brim, there will be lemonade all over the kitchen counter. This is a less severe “flooding” example.  Now your main focus, instead of drinking a delicious glass of lemonade, is trying to remember where you put the paper towels. Who wants to clean when there is a glass of lemonade screaming “Drink me!?” Not me.

These 2 lessons are different in nature but offer the same lesson in life.
