Quote from : "They win by making us think we're alone."

You are not alone. I don't care you who you are, or where you're from, or any of that. If you are genuinely trying to be a decent person, then you have friends in many places, including me.

Hello, and welcome! I am a TCK (Third Culture Kid). My life experiences range all the way from living in a thatched-roof hut in the jungle, to a high-paying tech career in California.

Recently, I have come full circle, and realized that the people of the tribal village I grew up in, in the South American jungle, remain some of the best friends I ever had. My username, Uyakon, is taken from their language. It means "little brother."

Peace,
Uyakon

Mastodon

Mastodon is an ethically-designed, open-source microblogging platform consisting of a network of independent servers that talk to each other (the "fediverse"). It can be thought of as an alternative to Twitter, for example. This particular server focuses on two things: First, fighting oppression, exploitation, abuse and victimization, whether of humans, plants, animals, or the planet itself. Second, helping people heal from any of the above that they have experienced or witnessed.
