Every movement can look back to a given day in its history when everything changed for a people: February 22, 1632, July 4, 1776, August 28, 1963, November 4, 2008. Frankly, the list could go on and on – and it will as April 1, 2011, marks a paradigm shift in not only our understanding of the natural world and our place in it, the role of the individual in society, the very nature of existence, i.e. the very questions many a philosopher has failed to answer. There’s a storm on the horizon and we can feel the first trickles of rain upon our skin; let us get on our rain gear (and bring our loved ones to the torrent).
As the Pretty Awful Giraffes online presence begins to grow, we are going to need all the help we can get in spreading the word. Please tell all of your friends about the website, encourage them to follow our Twitter account at @AwfulGiraffes and to like our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/prettyawfulgiraffes.
Again, the website goes fully live on April 1, 2011, so be sure to come and check out the maiden voyage with giraffes drawn by U.S. Congressmen Tim Walz and Keith Ellison, Senator Al Franken, the National Park Ranger at Mt. Rushmore, blogger PZ Myers, Eboo Patel, the Secretary of the Nobel Prize Committee, and MORE.
