Some websites worth checking out

1. http://www.productsofslavery.org/ - This website really opened up my eyes and made me stop and realize that I need to update my understanding of things going on around the world. To see not only child labor exist still in this day and age, but to actually know what products they are making and where in the world makes it more real. This website made me stop and actually do a little reflecting and reading about this topic.

2. http://longgame.org/2010/11/the-changing-maps-of-a-pale-blue-dot/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+TheLongGame+%28The+Long+Game%29

This is a website that I almost closed out without reading. I am glad I did as it puts into perspective how much power and the shifts of our world history has changed over time. Even more important is the whole notion that things going on right now may not be that important when you stop to imagine our place in the universe.

3. http://www.endlessmural.com/ - A very cool concept. Simply create your own artwork and then submit to the mural. Your mural is then connected with all the other murals created from around the world.
