We Don't Get a Do-Over!

This is one thing we have to get right the first time... we don't get to do it over if we continue to mess it up!

This is one thing we have to get right the first time... we don't get to do it over if we continue to mess it up! All of life is fragile, interconnected, dependent upon each other. We need each species that God has seen fit to give us for maximum health, productivity and the highest quality of life. Did you know that many of the medicines that successfully treat cancer today are from the strange and unique wildlife of the Rain Forests? Those of us who are cancer survivors would not be here without them.

The same is true for the animals. They are with us for a reason. Just because we don't know or completely understand the reason for each species, makes it no less true. This planet is not one huge "free-for-all" where greedy corporations and mindless politicians can long continue to squander its resources. We will not be here to tell about it. I cannot understand people who claim to be "moral leaders" but who cannot understand this simple truth: Protecting the environment (along with poverty, health care and homeless issues) ARE MORAL ISSUES.
