Some of the most beautiful scenery on Earth can be found on various islands scattered around the world. Our goal is to visit as many as possible before we shake off this mortal coil. Despite all the bullshit and chaos in the world today, you can find peace and serenity on practically any beach in the world.
Islands magazine is a great source for info and high-definition pictures of gorgeous islands and beaches, not to mention sweepstakes and special deals for getaways.
Terry Gross: "So when you left Mexico and were faced with a different part of the Catholic Church, did you consider going back or were you just done?"
Jorge Ramos (b. 1958): "No, I was done. I was done...once I started going to college, and once I realized that nobody really knows if there's afterlife, that there's really no explanation, no religious explanation on why children die, why children have cancer, why all the cruelty in wars happen, why all these terrible things that I've seen as a journalist. Once you realize that there's no religious explanation, then I really had no choice but to leave Catholic Church and I became an agnostic.
