Hesitation to use the I may be a tell-tale sign that the I does not know itself fully. Or maybe the I doesn’t know which I, of the many different Is, to use. In any case, there is an I. And there is a You. The You is validated by the I. There couldn’t be a You without the I. But the I also becomes a You through the validation of I through You. And so, the I also exists thanks to You. And so to You who is reading this confused speech of I, THANK YOU. I's existence has become meaningful because of You.______________________________

Campaigns that Build Environmental Awareness
Here are some of the campaigns I singled out from this page by Sergiu Naslau. Fantastic advertisements. I hope to see more of them, but then again, it puzzles me that we need to do these campaigns just for people to be aware and do something about it. :(

The 4th is probably my favorite out of all, but I find all of them striking and I believe more people should see these ads.
