Você não precisa de razões para as coisas que faz. Você só tem que fazer o que quer. E, às vezes, o que parece errado para todo mundo é o que é certo para você. Você tem que fazer e não se envergonhar.

The Nature Conservancy is the largest environmental conservation nonprofit in the world. Its mission is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. Working in more than 35 countries, it employs 600 scientists. It has 1 million members, 1,350 volunteers, and a staff of around 4,000 people. Its vision is to conserve nature and the value it provides to people, while helping the world meet demand for food, water, and energy.  The Nature Conservancy believes in doing more than protecting natural resources. It also engages directly with businesses and governments to create new models that can make development sustainable. The organization was founded over 60 years ago and has protected over 120 million acres. It started working in Brazil in 1988. Today it operates from 6 offices and works in 5 of the 6 Brazilian biomes.

Here's what the President sent Congress yesterday:
Yesterday, President Obama transmitted to Congress a proposed authorization for the use of military force, or AUMF, against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, also known as ISIL.
ISIL poses a threat to U.S. national security, which is why U.S. armed forces are already working with some 60 other nations and partners to degrade and ultimately destroy ISIL. The President has said that we are strongest as a nation when the President and Congress work together, and enacting a bipartisan AUMF against ISIL would provide a clear and powerful signal that the United States stands united behind the efforts to degrade and ultimately destroy ISIL.
Take a look at the text of the letter he sent to Congress, below. Then learn more about exactly what an authorization of military force means for us.

The White House

The so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) poses a threat to the people and stability of Iraq, Syria, and the broader Middle East, and to U.S. national security. It threatens American personnel and facilities located in the region and is responsible for the deaths of U.S. citizens James Foley, Steven Sotloff, Abdul-Rahman Peter Kassig, and Kayla Mueller. If left unchecked, ISIL will pose a threat beyond the Middle East, including to the United States homeland.
I have directed a comprehensive and sustained strategy to degrade and defeat ISIL. As part of this strategy, U.S. military forces are conducting a systematic campaign of airstrikes against ISIL in Iraq and Syria. Although existing statutes provide me with the authority I need to take these actions, I have repeatedly expressed my commitment to working with the Congress to pass a bipartisan authorization for the use of military force (AUMF) against ISIL. Consistent with this commitment, I am submitting a draft AUMF that would authorize the continued use of military force to degrade and defeat ISIL.
My Administration's draft AUMF would not authorize long-term, large-scale ground combat operations like those our Nation conducted in Iraq and Afghanistan. Local forces, rather than U.S. military forces, should be deployed to conduct such operations. The authorization I propose would provide the flexibility to conduct ground combat operations in other, more limited circumstances, such as rescue operations involving U.S. or coalition personnel or the use of special operations forces to take military action against ISIL leadership. It would also authorize the use of U.S. forces in situations where ground combat operations are not expected or intended, such as intelligence collection and sharing, missions to enable kinetic strikes, or the provision of operational planning and other forms of advice and assistance to partner forces.
Although my proposed AUMF does not address the 2001 AUMF, I remain committed to working with the Congress and the American people to refine, and ultimately repeal, the 2001 AUMF. Enacting an AUMF that is specific to the threat posed by ISIL could serve as a model for how we can work together to tailor the authorities granted by the 2001 AUMF.
I can think of no better way for the Congress to join me in supporting our Nation's security than by enacting this legislation, which would show the world we are united in our resolve to counter the threat posed by ISIL.


Salmo 30

EXALTAR-TE-EI, ó SENHOR, porque tu me exaltaste; e não fizeste com que meus inimigos se alegrassem sobre mim.
SENHOR meu Deus, clamei a ti, e tu me saraste.
SENHOR, fizeste subir a minha alma da sepultura; conservaste-me a vida para que não descesse ao abismo.
Cantai ao SENHOR, vós que sois seus santos, e celebrai a memória da sua santidade.
Porque a sua ira dura só um momento; no seu favor está a vida. O choro pode durar uma noite, mas a alegria vem pela manhã.
Eu dizia na minha prosperidade: Não vacilarei jamais.
Tu, SENHOR, pelo teu favor fizeste forte a minha montanha; tu encobriste o teu rosto, e fiquei perturbado.
A ti, SENHOR, clamei, e ao SENHOR supliquei.
Que proveito há no meu sangue, quando desço à cova? Porventura te louvará o pó? Anunciará ele a tua verdade?
Ouve, SENHOR, e tem piedade de mim, SENHOR; sê o meu auxílio.
Tornaste o meu pranto em folguedo; desataste o meu pano de saco, e me cingiste de alegria,
Para que a minha glória a ti cante louvores, e não se cale. SENHOR, meu Deus, eu te louvarei para sempre.
Sabedoria Cristã: Servir a Deus é: fechar o olho na terra, abrir o olho no céu [Pb Fábio Julio]
