SHOOT PHOTOS NOT GUNS 2020

January 8, 2020

We are taking a quick break from our normal posts but we think this is important. Believing that our followers are inquisitive, aware and concerned, we have a proposal. Can you help?

With all the horrifying talk of impending doom and possible war that has happened in the short first days of our new year 2020 I have decided that we need something positive to happen. I would like to start a campaign. I don’t know anything about starting a campaign but let’s try. 

Let’s make sure we don’t have a war in our future that could possibly destroy the world as we know it (albeit it certainly still needs a lot of help) but instead let’s get together and share photos of people we DON”T want to wage war with. 

Glenn and I have spent a good portion of our adult lives expounding the amazing virtue of exploring the world through travel. It fosters good will, common courtesy, intelligence, critical thought, self awareness, community, joy, communication and oh so much more. We both treasure the moments we have spent traveling and meeting other people around the world. With those experiences we have broken down barriers and preconceptions of the world around us that we held within us. 

Now as expats living in Mexico and planning years of upcoming adventures we challenge others to break loose and get out there to explore, learn and cultivate a better understanding of those we share our fragile planet with. 

If you believe in my campaign “Shoot photos, not guns 2020” Instagram a photo you have taken of someone in the world you have traveled through for whom you do not want to destroy their livelihoods, culture, way of life, family, art, land or community. Send your photo to  #shootphotosnotguns2020  And make sure to add your own comment of positive energy or a travel quote you think has meaning at this time in the worlds history. 

If we don’t bond, we break.  #ifwedontbondwebreak

Can you help spread the word?

    It’s a simple wish, but my hope is that we all choose to treat others as we would like to be treated in 2020!

      Here Here David!!!!! I figure I can sit and get really frustrated or I can try and do something to voice my concerns. Even if it is a little thing. We desperately need people (besides us) to get behind this and post photos. So pass those #s on. See you soon, back on Saturday!!! Yippee

    Wonderful idea, Ria. We are really more like each other than different. We all want the same things. To feel safe, loved, happy.
