Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not
I absolutely love "The Lorax". It is such a powerful story and considering it's almost 40 years old, it's still a really relevant message today.
Today is an excellent chance to look back at my own involvement in the "green movement". Two years ago today I completed my first two month bike tour with environmental education group. We biked from Vancouver to Calgary and it was the first time I really felt alive inside. Last year, on this same day, I set off on my second tour with them, this time on the western coast of B.C. and again I felt the passion to keep trying to make the world a better place.
It's idealistic yes, and sometimes people don't like to know the story behind society...where food comes from, how we get our fuel, what happens to our waste, but I really believe that things can get better. Dr.Seuss thought so, why can't I?
