Take a walk a few KM’s from your next resort, here is what the beaches of the world really look like these days.

Many polar bears fail to get from their winter home in Spitsbergen to their summer home on the Arctic pack ice. Due to global warming, the ice around the islands is melting earlier in the season than before. As a result, the polar bears cannot reach their normal prey and instead rely on other food such as garbage, eggs and carrion. This often leads to starvation and death.

We were on our medical mission trip in Sitio Linyama, Bongabong, Oriental Mindoro, Philippines when I saw this family arrive to the place where they dump all the bananas they have collected from the mountains. They sell these for P20.00 ($0.40) per bundle of bananas. They will use the money to buy rice to feed their stomachs for the day. What stirs me in this photo is how happy they still look after a long day of hard work. That just melts my heart.
