The Veterans Green Bus Needs Our Help

Dear Friends and Fellow Navigators,,

You may or may not remember about the Veterans Green Bus I shared a while back, a few places on social media. The bus operator, Gordon Soderberg, found his gift was to serve people, and he chose to do so by showing up at disaster areas with a bus called Large Marge.
Well, someone decided to torch the bus for some reason, so Gordon Sodenberg needs to rebuild, as he has been helping people in this way for so long, he's really good at it.

Back to the Farm

Small family farms and permaculture practices are the antidote to an environmentally destructive monoculture.

In Memory of Lyra McKee

From the Go Fund Me:
On April 18, "investigative journalist Lyra McKee was shot dead in a terrorist incident on the streets of Derry. A gunman shot her in the head as she attempted to cover riots on the Creggan area of the city...

Lyra was one of the nicest, smartest nad most decent people I have ever met. Lyra was part of a new generation of Northern Irish journalists (and young people) who had moved past sectarian identities and wanted to build a more progressive, more peaceful Northern Ireland. Lyra was a powerful advocate for LGBTi rights, civil liberties and human rights.

Lyra was also an incredible investigative journalist. She was in Forbes 30 Under 30 List, had a growing international reputation and was working on her second book.

I had the pleasure to get to know Lyra through her working on the grassroots campaign to reform the law of libel in Northern Ireland. Lyra was a passionate defender of press freedom and exposing the truth.

You don't expect journalists to be killed anywhere. For it to happen to a friend, in a (troubled) democracy, is just unbelievable. I feel so sad for Lyra's family. She was an incredible person and I will really miss her.

" 'All the money in this Gofundme will go to the family of Lyra McKee for funeral expenses and to decide on her legacy.' "

Three Southern churches were burned over the course of ten days. A white nationalist is in custody. His father helped turn him over to authorities. Sending best wishes to healing for all.
