The thought that the power of life or death is decided upon a spit of people, leaves the mouth stale and dry. As frustration builds, one begins to wonder, what (truly) is death? Is it the absence of the brain? Is it the stopping of the heart? Is it the loosing of the limbs that uses the blood pumped by the heart and the mental function of the brain!?
A dumb dog doesn’t speak nor think. It acts and reacts. Trees have never whispered a word nor cried for help. A dying child in India who speaks with their eyes and grabs a hold of the viewer's heart with their smile compels people to cross borders, break rules, redefine right and wrong, and become their voice that will change their situation.
Dominion was given to man over everything except each other but now California--the land of plastic, debt, and fallen stars--decides that a person with a beating heart should die. Save trees that don't speak, but kill people whose hearts beat. It's time to reevaluate what is death and what is life because if human life is defined by California, there may be a day as many Americans use less and less of their brains, might find themselves unwillingly disconnected.
