Is everyone else as busy as we are during Quarantine?!
April 24th, 2020-
Quarantine has offered humanity an unprecedented time to RESTART.
If we have been neglecting the planet, the future, neighbors, and loved ones-
If we have lost the passion, beauty, and magnificence of human life-
If we cannot imagine ourselves or the planet going any farther in the direction we were previously headed-
WE CAN CHANGE THAT NOW!
I do not know about you, but I do not want to miss out on the INCREDIBLE opportunity to dream, to learn, to grow, to achieve. And if I have anything to say about it- you should not either! The truth is, I am just a nobody, a stranger on the other side of the screen. I say things that resonate deeply with people, and I say somethings that shake people and upset them deeply.
If life has taught me anything- it is that that is my job.
Just as you have your own “job”.
I cannot stop watching “Major Lazer Feat. Marcus Mumford – Lay Your Head On Me”
as it is so inspiring! All of those individuals did their part, their ‘job’. Every single individual in that video with their diverse background, dancing skill, and attire CRUSHED IT! I seriously think that it is the best thing to come out of COVID so far!
They all did their ‘jobs’. Each one of those artists put aside any skepticism; they believed in themselves; they went for it- and- well, the video speaks for itself, does it not?! It is not easy to put yourself on blast as they did. But because they did, they are now uplifting countless people across the globe and innumerable amounts of individuals throughout history to come! What power!
Imagine if we all did our “jobs”- not what we have to do- but rather what we have a passion doing! That is a world worth striving for if you ask me.
It is my ‘job’ to question- I do not know why- but you best believe I have been asking my whole life!
“Curiosity Killed The Cat.” They say- my mum always made sure I knew “Satisfaction Brought ’Em Back.”
I have always pursued truth, that is why I want to have so many Guest Bloggers from around the world- to seek truth you must look everywhere.
Dream. Search. Discover.
I got that tattooed onto my body in Macedonia in 2013- the first I ever got. While I knew that I wanted a tattoo for years- I was still finalizing the idea in my head on the ride through the beautiful Macedonia countryside.
Everyone has Dreams– and we should all pursue them.
If you do Search– you may not find what you expected.
Yet you will Discover– and that will lead to more ambitious goals…
I have been handwriting
the numbers of coronavirus cases of the world and the United States into my log for a month now- I want to say, the CDC has never reported accurate numbers that any other site could verify. Coronaboard.com and Covidtracker.com, on the other hand, almost always have near-identical numbers (or close enough with a margin of error).
I will record my numbers for today (April 24th, 2020)
I do not know what these log entries or photos might benefit- but I feel I must record this information. If not for us, for the future generations to come.
CURRENT GLOBAL CONDITION
The globe has 7,780,046,500 people living on it currently.
The current mortality count is 197,196.
the CDC site Cautions-
***On Saturday and Sunday, the numbers in COVID-19: U.S. at a Glance and the figure describing the cumulative total number of COVID-19 cases in the United States will be updated. These numbers are preliminary and have not been confirmed by state and territorial health departments. CDC will update weekend numbers the following Monday to reflect health department updates.***
It is unclear why the CDC does not have a live counter like other sites across the web do. However, they have also not been updating their pages by 4 pm! Everyday they are a day behind- now it is slipping to two days away!
However, I found discrepancies in those numbers. Or is it possible the CDC is not careful to update their site frequently?

United States Of America
SKY NEWS, April 23rd, 2020:
“In America protests are growing against the coronavirus lockdown measures – in Georgia, non-essential businesses will re-open, against the advice of the President Donald Trump. And in Virginia they too want the state to re-open for business. But are the protesters motivated by science or more deep-rooted beliefs?”

When I have been getting down lately
(can you believe Quarantine has been nearly 40 days here? Italy and elsewhere even longer!), I have been going back to the Major Lazer Feat. Marcus Mumford Lay Your Head On Me music video. I just- I just cannot get enough!
The submission videos that make up the music video all on their own are all so artistic and inspiring. I do not want to imagine what I would do if those folks hadn’t down their part- it would be a much darker Quarantine.
Can you imagine a day when we all do our ‘jobs’?
It would be like the most beautiful and well-orchestrated compilation video that the internet ever had uploaded to it- the music of our creation would ring out for the rest of eternity!
Renaissance Rising was never going to stay as a solo project of mine- it was always destined for more perspectives from the far reaches of the earth.
RenRising Is Proud To Welcome FIVE Additional Resident Bloggers From Around The Globe! They will all be introduced in solo posts (the schedule is filling up fast, and the World News doesn’t slow down, let alone stop!).
With reach like that, the Little-Seen, Little-Reported Injustices across the planet just got a lot more eyes watching and reporting them!
Renaissance Rising started as a dream to address little taught aspects of adult life that the education systems everywhere neglect- but in the process of me creating this Creative Collective, the direction of the site has changed- and that is exciting!
I cannot say precisely where Renaissance Rising as a website will be one month from now- but if the analytics can be trusted- the only indication is Sky-High!
