    Jun 17 2013: Since we are all in one planet, we must do that, recently I've been going through the news; a lot of tragedies in this planet, in China for example there are villages called as "Cancer Villages" spreading a long the factories there, people who are working in are getting profit but it always end up with workers having cancers, if we didn't make actions toward this it will definitely affect all of us, if we didn't feel it now and moved as fast as we can we will for sure feel the pain and pay the bill sooner or later.
