It is Not a Given


As a grown adult I still recall myself as an idealistic child watching a forest of 150,000 trees become a clear cut in my back yard. I can't explain what that feels like, but not a day goes by when I don't reflect on my duty to protect, preserve, and conserve the wilderness and lands I am privileged to share with the birds, animals and nature.

We must consider our forests, seas, rivers, deserts and plains like the air we breathe and the water we drink to stay alive. The more we take care of them, like our bodies, the longer we will be able to experience the grace of time on Earth.

I cannot live with myself if I don't tell you how much I feel required to do whatever possible to preserve and strengthen the Endangered Species Act and prevent further destruction of our natural spaces. It is a value, a moral duty and an ethic.

I could not be. You could not be. The beauty of life would not be. It is that simple.
