Introducing myself and my journal: Thoughts on a dying planet

About Me:
I've been an activist for peace and against nuclear proliferation including nuke power, weapons, industry, war since i was about 12 years old after Three Mile Island partially melted down in Pennsylvania, where I was born. It scared the hell out of me. So I went to a rally in Washington,D.C. and listened to speakers like Dr. Helen Caldicott who spoke about our right to live a healthy life on this planet. That is our right! And now she is my very dear friend and my mentor.

I grew up in a household which taught me that women have the right to choose what to do with their bodies, to protect them from harm, prevent unwanted pregnancies and to cherish them. I am a pro-choice activist.

I am a professional singer/musician/songwriter.

I am a massage therapist and person who helps facilitate others to heal.

Hi MGerman!

Welcome to the community! I see you're based in Portland. I'm from Portland too! You sound very passionate about the issue of nuclear proliferation. Personal experience, especially in your own hometown can make a huge impact!

I see you're a musician? Do you have a website? I love music and my background is in music business.

If you have not already, there are plenty of women here from US in particular that you might be interested in connecting with, and they're listed here:

If you would like some additional tips on making the most of what our site has to offer I encourage you to look through our Getting Started Guide, available here:
