Enjoy the beauty God gives us and fight to keep it...
Last night I listened to our President's speech and the complexity and long term effect of the oil spill on everyone is depressing but his determination to right the wrongs and look to the future was helpful.
I received the following in an e-mail from Scotland yesterday:
"I am the forest that is being cut down.
I am the rivers and the air that are being polluted,
and I am also the person who cuts down the forest
and pollutes the rivers and the air.
I see myself in all species,
and I see all species in me.
