(For those wondering: The bear in the image is Kumamon, the official mascot for the Kumamoto prefecture.)
Schram’s humanitarian spirit, which sparked her career nearly a decade ago, firmly remains paralleled to her music, placing her in a unique niche that stumps some music executives, who are unsure how to market a community-service-driven artist.

You'll never convince me that media doesn't attempt to influence their target audience. If you only go off of what you hear in the news and don't try to figure out the truth, you will forever live uninformed about very important discussions and debates that LITERALLY could be life or death decisions for other people.
I said I wasn’t going to say anything.
I said-I cannot-I will not-I should not.
When few care to listen to a view I find so simple.
Though I know terror is far from simple.
One thing that is simple to me is that children are d-r-o-w-n-i-n-g in hopes of a better life.
I’ve seen the photos of babies in their warm pajamas gone cold.
Their diapers as waterlogged as their lungs.
Some are orphans.
Some left behind families already grieving the loss of their home.
Now left to grieve their drowned children in their desperation to escape the horror.
Our country has its horrors too.
We have our own orphans.
We have our own homeless.
We have our own living in desperation.
But to say we cannot help.
We will not help.
They are not our own.
Fills me with such disgust I could scream.
They are human.
They are survivors.
They need us.
If they did not they would not have risked it all.
Everything they had.
If you think we cannot care for them because we cannot care for ourselves:
If you refuse to help anyone else.
If you value American suffering more than Syrian suffering.
If you value American suffering more than Mexican suffering.
If you value American suffering above all human suffering.
Stop your crying.
Help up a homeless veteran.
Look them in the eyes.
Lessen their suffering rather than posting on social media about how sick it makes you and how they deserve help but the Syrians don’t.
And yet you do nothing.
Volunteer.-Feed them.-Clothe them.-Bathe them.
Help them up.
Help them up.
Help them up.
If you will help no one else.
They deserve to be helped but not just because they are American.
Because they are people who suffer like we all do.
If you fear refugees being followed by terror:
Terror is already here.
Every week since a man with a gun took the lives of 20 children from the safety of their schoolroom and 6 adults who loved them.
Shattering their families.
We have our own terror everywhere.
And yet I refuse to be swayed by the possibility of more terror if it means 20,000 people could find hope and safety.
For the widows.
For the babies.
For the drowned.
For the blown up.
For the shot.
For the tortured.
For the torn human beings who seek refuge here.
I'm looking to change internet because I hate being bent over the table by Comcast...

Use additional options, set the scale of importance, skip questions on topics you don't feel too strongly about. And see who represents your views the best!
Then get to the polls!!!
Also, how do I share with Extended Circles?
- The Purple GuysSystem Administrator, 2012 - present
I am also a wife and mother. I enjoy spending time with my family. I hold the title of Systems Administrator at The Purple Guys. I love Astronomy and Physics and hope to learn more of the field, even if just to be a groupie. I enjoy reading mysteries and sci-fi, as well as drawing manga, and doing creative writing/poetry/songs. I love music, and am slowly coming out of the closet for being a metal-head. I enjoy playing games such as World of Warcraft, I did beta for Rift, and even spent some time in Aion. I am currently aspiring to write a non-fiction book about something I am very passionate about in which I feel that awareness and change needs to happen. I will not go into more detail, but for anyone who is close to me, feel free to ask. Overall, I am a passionately creative, heavy-metal, nerd.
