About a huge issue. Yesterday, Ken, Tim and I went to see An Inconvenient Truth. Now I'm not a fan of documentary films, let alone lectures. But even I realize how important an issue this is for all of us, so I was eager to see the Truth. It is a must see. I'm encouraging everyone I know to see this movie.
It frightens me to imagine the world that we're leaving for our children and grandchildren. Now I'm not one to lecture. I drive an SUV and I enjoy the conveniences of my life. But I am willing to find alternatives. I am willing to do what I can to help. If each of us makes just a small change, together as a whole I believe that we can make an impact. I know that alone will not solve the problem, but it certainly can't hurt.
Ken told me once where this quote came from, but I remember hearing it from one of my professors in college and it has always stuck with me:
We don't inherit the earth from our parents; we borrow it from our children. I'm sure that Ken will let you know the origin of that quote.
