Saving Ourselves

Whether or not you know it, this planet will survive. We do not need to rush around saving the planet for the planet’s sake. It will evolve into whatever form it does. That’s simply the truth.

What you do need to consider is how you are contributing to the survival of the species that live on this planet – plant, animal and human. In other words – “what are we doing to save ourselves?”

Many people haven’t or have not chosen to make the connection to why we need to care about the other inhabitants of this beautiful sphere we call Earth. They are focused on their own lives which might include their communities and countries. What we sometimes fail to realize is that what we do to our planet directly impacts our individual lives.

This morning I was so moved by a piece written on the blog of my friend Adrian Hayes’ Greenland Expedition. I’ve heard it before but the photo and the way the message was written struck deep again. Please take a look and share your thoughts. We CAN make a difference every single day.

My commitment right now is to offer only paper bags for the people who pass through the gift shop I’ll be working in today. AND I’ll speak up!

Here’s the link:
