world refugee day.

It's World Refugee Day. Today's challenge: take 10 mins, search "refugees" on, and get informed.

I was perusing through today, and came across this news article: I don't really have any words to describe how I feel about that.

I can't imagine what my body is capable of if I actually treated it with respect, and stopped eating junk food and started drinking water and getting 8 hours of sleep a night. Imagine the possibilities..
