1 Dying for what you love

Sadly two eco-heroes were executed in Brazil this week for protecting the trees in the Amazon against deforestation and illegal logging practices. It makes me sad to be a human being when I hear of things like this happening. Is business that important that it is worth taking lives? What becomes clear is that two people were making a difference...so much so that it had someone scared enough to kill them. And José Cláudio Ribeiro da Silva knew he was going to be killed, he knew that what they were doing was dangerous but he was willing to risk his own life to help protect the trees. 

We need more people in the world like José and his wife Maria.

Would you put it all on the line for the environment?
