We're saving our own lives

winter01

Something that humbles me about Second Life is how it makes the globe shrink. Suddenly a cause that seems dismissible because it's so far away (who gives a shit about somewhere dusty on the other side of the world? :D ) takes on human faces, and it isn't simply "someone's" house burning down, it's Aemilia's town, Winter's country, Faery's nation. Winter says it more eloquently here. Winter and I are sporting items that benefit the victims of this fire. Best of luck to the burnt land and the people within it. The dress is from Moonshine Clothing, the hair for men and women is from Philotic Energy, and the necklace is from Studio Sidhe.

You said that so very well. It's much much harder to turn your head to something when it's personalized for us this way.
For those in my 1st life who do not *know* the people I know, I just keep shoving in their face. it may be across the world but it feels like it's in my backyard.
