It’s so true, isn’t it?
Environmental concerns are what keep me awake at night, as do images of factory farming (animal factories) and poverty in 3rd world countries. I fear for the future of my unborn grandchildren. What kind of a planet will they inherit? What kind of society are we becoming?
And yet, do I speak up? Not often. I make contributions to organizations that are working to make a difference and I try to live in a way that leaves the least damaging footprint, hoping that I’m leading by example. But I know that is not enough. When I see other people’s apathy toward the state of our planet, or to absurd practises (ie. trophy hunting) I tend to keep my thoughts to myself. I don’t like to make waves, but I guess that’s yet another form of apathy.
