Today I made a decision. There are so many issues confronting us today, from political issues, to health issues, to economic issues, to environmental issues… it’s easy to become overwhelmed and do nothing. Sometimes I feel that there are so many problems in this world, and they are so huge, that my little voice will never be heard, much less have any measurable impact on any of these issues. I know that I am not alone in this feeling.
For many years, I have talked about toxins and chemicals and their impact on our health, and I have shared this information with others in the hopes of making a difference. I believe that we must, for the sake of our children, open our eyes to what’s happening to our planet. Our government and our media would have us believe that all is well, that our rivers and streams are healthy, and that our planet is thriving. Does this feel right to you? We must care enough to look beyond what is fed to us. I believe that by working together, we can and we will put this earth back on a positive path. It is not necessary that we do a lot, it is just necessary that we do something.
Today, I made a decision. It is no longer enough for me to talk and share. Today, I am asking for you to take a stand and make a difference. Today I am implementing change in my own home environment, and I am asking you to do the same. We must not only care, we must say that we care and we must show that caring through our actions.
