The spin on the news from the U.S. government is always trying to sound positive. When I counter peoples take on the policy decisions Bush makes, I am told I am just trying to find the negative. When 30,000 children die each day from preventable issues I don’t care if I sound “negative”. It is not negative to see and accept reality. If it seems negative, we should fix the problems, not kill the messanger.
Unraveling the mess of information can be a daunting task. Each and every one of us does not have the time to even begin to learn everything that needs to be done to heal our society and planet. Change requires each of us doing what we can. From a construction worker to an executive we each play a roll. Make the best environmental decision you can with each project. Push your management to end unfair or unclean acts. If you are in mangament, stop letting profit be the only thing you think about. Building a strong community is worth a lot more than your next year end bonus.
I have found myself compromising my beliefs more the older I get, but each day I am trying to reinvent myself. You can do it too. It is all just a decision.
