We all have a part to play in how our world turns out. Complaining gets us nowhere, we need to act!
All of us have a gift or talent for something, I guess you could say mine was my sensitivity for the environment and animals. I can remember back to a figure skating practice my mom was driving me to. Some how we got on to the discussion of what I wanted to be when I grew up and I said Environmentalist. I don’t think I quite knew what that meant at the time, but there I was, staking my ground in wanting to protect this beautiful land upon which we were born.
Of all the environmental issues facing the world today, I think the one that makes me reflect the most is landfills. Maybe because I have a direct impact on it, every day that I live. Somehow along the lines of throwing ‘shit’ out, we forgot that it doesn’t disappear, it’s just moved to another place. That water bottle you threw out in 1987 while at a soccer game….it’s still there. That laundry detergent bottle from your first year of college….it’s still there too. Yet, we continue to dispose like there’s no consequence.
