alex+piper | are you going to age with grace? 

Thousands of Romanians across the country rallied late on Sunday to protest against the government’s support for a plan to open Europe’s biggest open-cast gold mine in the small Carpathian town of Rosia Montana. 

The project, which aims to use cyanide to mine 314 tonnes of gold and 1,500 tonnes of silver, has drawn fierce opposition from civic rights groups and environmentalists, who say it would destroy ancient Roman gold mines and villages.

We’re thinking of the people and families of Lac-Mégantic, Quebec - where 24 are confirmed dead following an explosive train derailment of fracked shale oil last Saturday.

This quote showed up in the Guardian yesterday ( http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/true-north/2013/jul/11 ) - about the action friends in Maine did a couple weeks ago (with 350 Maine & Maine Earth First).

One hope of the work we do is that somebody we will spell the end of these needless extreme energy explosions and expected accidents that kill and maim our communities. A better world is possible.

We Are Young / Said & Done

I was watching an amazing video on YouTube- fearlessummer’s ‘How will you be remembered?’ when I had the idea of putting the quote against ‘we are young’, I tried it and it sounded really good. And, as I am a terrible film maker, I went the easy way and decided to do this-




So if you play the two together it sounds cool!

I don’t own either of these videos.

Said & Done

How often do you look back?

Really reflect on what you’ve done?

The insignificance of it all;

the pointless arguments,

Inside jokes,

Funny haircuts.

Do you ever wonder how you’ll be remembered?

Or if what you’ve done

And what you’re doing means anything at all.

What will your songs sound like when you’re dead and gone?

Will tears fall when the last note is sung?

How will your story be told?

Will your words leave a bitter taste in their mouths?

Will they even remember you at all?

 

Compassion.

The concept is rather simple.

Most know what it means to be civil;

But there truly is a fine line between sweet and sour.

Give too much of yourself away and you’ll be all used up.

Not enough and no one will be around to share this with.

So what is it that motivates us?

To be better, gentler, more refined.

I like to think it’s those close to us,

Close to the heart and soul.

Those who carried you to the car after you puked on their shoes.

Those who take the blame for breaking the window,

When it was you who cast the stone.

Those who will be by your side when reality knocks on your door,

both good and bad.

More importantly,

Those whose stories you’ll share with your kids and grandkids

And their kids and their grandkids,

In hopes to somehow keep us all alive.

Chivalry, decency, kindness,

Compassion, desire, strength.

How will you be remembered?
