As a peaceful warrior, I would choose when, where and how I would behave.
With that commitment, I began to live the life of a warrior.

What's all the buzz about?

If you are not familiar with Bees and what their role in our society is...time to find out. They are critical to our ecosystem and things are falling apart! They are not pests that we swat away, but are valuable contributors to life as we know it. Why is their survival important?

"Bees play an important role in pollinating flowering plants, and are the major type of pollinators in ecosystems that contain flowering plants. Bees may focus on gathering nectar or on gathering pollen, depending on their greater need at the time, especially in social species. Bees gathering nectar may accomplish pollination, but bees that are deliberately gathering pollen are more efficient pollinators.". It is estimated that one third of the human food supply depends on insect pollination, most of this accomplished by bees.

Okay gang, just bee aware and have a beeautiful day! ~j
