“UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not!”
No surprise to you, I suppose, I read kid’s books. Of course! I’ve got kids! And I LOVE Dr. Seuss. A while back we went to see the movie The Lorax. And I was so excited to share that moment with my kids.I was first introduced, believe it or not, to the book the Lorax in my environmental health class in college. But never too late. That class and that book changed my ways ever since:
*I went from littering (sad but true.There was no type of environmental education or awareness in Colombian when I was growing up) to a recycle sergeant.
*From not noticing the colors of the leaves to my kid’s first colors learned being green (obviously) and blue (the recycling tank is blue).
*From a greasy cheeseburger to non-processed foods and from the citrus smell of Lysol to non-chemicals household cleaners ( I’ve been using vinegar long before Pinterest made it famous).
For me it hasn’t been about going green half way or all the way. It has been more about what I owe to my children. I owe them the world that I am leaving behind. I DO care and I hope to care an “awful lot.”
You could care less about the warnings of screwing up our environment? Then this post is still for you. Your life is more than the trees and the oceans, it’s your job, it’s your personal relationships, it’s your faith, etc etc. So remember:
UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not!
