Hola everyone.


You know, today has been a real rollercoaster. On the one side it was a super amazing day and on the other side I feel like I lost all hope today. You’ll all probably know by now what I’m talking about.

.

Honestly, I never wanted to turn this blog into something political and I have no wish to change this, not even at a day like this one. But I love our planet and I think there are times when you just have to raise your voice, whether you planned it or not. So, in short, I am devastated that Trump and Co. are trying to literally destroy this planet. You all probably heard that he lifted the ban to import animal trophies from Africa, which Obama had started just 4 years ago. It seems like Trump just hates every single thing Obama did and just wants to destroy everything the USA achieved in the past years. So, what does that mean? It means that the Trump administration plans to allow hunters to bring trophies of elephants they killed in Zimbabwe and Zambia back to the United States, which of course means that all these hunters now have the chance to kill even more of these innocent, beautiful creatures for fun – or as they call it, as a sport. And it seems like lions will be next and so and on and on.

I read this today after I got into the subway on my way to uni and I couldn’t believe my eyes. I was and still am so damn angry. I mean, what the hell? How can someone possibly decide that it’s a good idea to shoot animals? What is even wrong with you? And then I read more and more and tears started streaming down my face in the middle of class and I didn’t even care. You have to know, in my family, our pets are part of our families. Our cat and dog are our babies, we could never live without them. My mum is a huge activist when it comes to animals and just as an example – when there’s a spider in our house we either let it stay or catch it and take it outside. Killing is wrong. Shooting animals for fun, for trophies is the sickest thing ever. And all these people destroy the chance of our future generations to see all those majestic animals. Like, imagine that? Lions and elephants are meant to go extinct in the next 20 years. 20 YEARS. And now that the situation seemed to improve, this guy and his administration come around and just destroy everything. Why? Just why?

.

So yeah, there’s that. I’m devastated and sad and speechless. I’m just happy that it seems like most of the world is pretty shocked about this and urges the US to change this immediately. And I’m trying to do my part by writing this – and even if I just reach out to one person, I achieved something – and by sharing this link here with you. It’s a petition against all this and if you could just take like 30 seconds to sign it, it would be amazing:

this way to sign and make the world a slightly better place

Thank you so much for your help guys. I know this is different to the stuff I usually post but I just felt that it was the right thing to speak up. And I really hope you have the same opinion as me.

.

And yeah, even though the situation worldwide could be better, I hope you’re all doing well and I wish you all an amazing weekend. And please don’t hesitate to leave your comments and thoughts down below. And, as always, thanks for reading. x
