        Bonnie's Favorite Quote:

        "I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me a magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. Our proper function is to LIVE, not to exist. I shall not waste my days....I shall use my time." (Jack London, slightly edited)

        This is how Maya lived. Every day she relished life. She hung her head out the window in the car because it was not often she could feel the fresh air on her face after spending months in the hospital. She taught me to never take life for granted. 

        I will always #LiveLikeMaya.

        What causes are closest to your heart? Why?

        World Peace - Ending violence due to oppression.  I have seen the result of self acceptance and the acceptance of others and it is nothing short of amazing.  We must be change makers in ourselves and that will  have a monumental ripple effect on the world. 

        Common Ground - Finding common ground with those I disagree with in an effort to be a we humanity rather than an us and them rivalry.

        Reduce our carbon footprint. - Through constant vigilance and education on Climate Change and what we can do to slow it down and adjust to the changes.  I want the next generations to have clean water, air, and a habitat that is sustainable.
