You know sometimes I look at what is happening in the world and it makes me feel so horribly defeated. Who cares if you are ingesting a harmful toxin from your water bottle if you are being shelled in your home as the people in the Middle East are...you are just thankful you have water. Who cares about toxin filled body cream when you have been forced from your home leaving all of your possessions behind...sent to wander and live where? So much pain and devastation I wonder why I should care about such a violent filled, toxic world? But then I realize, we all do what we can do to make a difference. We say our prayers at night and raise money for causes that can actually make a difference in people's lives. We tell our kids how lucky they are to be "here" instead of "there"...wherever "there" may be. We do what we can do.
Do not feel defeated when you look around and see a world filled with people that seem hell bent on destroying us. When it comes to the health of our population and our world, life itself is in the balance. If we all do what we can to become aware of how our consumer choices impact our world, make changes in areas we feel we can and share our journey with others, we can save ourselves and this world. Pray for peace, push for awareness and use your resources wisely.
