Show the world what you can do.

I found a poem yesterday that was a very straightforward reminder of our responsibility for the future of our planet. Unfortunately some are more responsible for the damage as they choose wealth and profit over the environment and people but, there is still hope in the numbers of those who care. “Look Outside” reminds me to appreciate the beauty in the world and to recognize that over time we are losing it. Unless we act now, the beauty we love will be gone forever.

Look Outside by Josie Greveling
Look outside, see the trees.
Watch the flowers in the breeze.
Things won't be like this in a year or two
If polluting is all we do.
Seize the night,
Seize the day.
Things won't always be this way.
Thousands of people are dying.
In the night, you hear children crying.
Let's stop the war.
Our people are sore.
The world can't help itself.
Who cares about your wealth?
Help me to help you
Show the world what you can do.

I encourage you to make on lifestyle change in the coming month. It can be something small so that you can maintain it. If you can, also encourage others to make just one change - a small change in the right direction. Through education, innovation and support, we can do more to protect the earth and those around us.
Have a lovely week,
