Killer of Cecil the lion was dentist from Minnesota, claim Zimbabwe officials | Environment | The Guardian

“The ZCTF said on Tuesday that it continued to mourn Cecil. Rodrigues pointed out that the hunter was believed to have paid just $50,000 to kill a creature that would have brought millions of dollars worth of tourism to the reserve.”

So are the authorities mad that Cecil was killed by a hunter? Or are they mad that the lion was an attraction and its deathwill cost the park millions?


What Is Your Purpose?


Would we have watched her #SandySpeaks videos if she were not a victim of police brutality? Would the world #SayHerName?

Do you know your purpose? Why are you here?

Many of us are not happy about the circumstances surrounding her death, but they are beyond our control. Sandra Bland inspired me to live my purpose. What is yours?

What Happened to Sandra Bland?

Sadly, as I celebrate my birthday today I must also join my sisters in mourning the loss of another Sigma sister. We don’t yet know what happened to her in that jail cell, but she shouldn’t have been there in the first place.


Black women are stuck between a place of activism and complacence, each rooted in fear. Who will fight for you? Yes, the minute you speak up for your rights, you are at risk. But what risk is greater? Speaking up, or staying silent and allowing your rights to disappear?
