Is she worth saving?
The beauty of having a blog is that I can write about whatever my little heart desires. Most of the time I try to keep things as light as I possibly can but over the next month or so I will be blogging about issues I believe to be vital and should get the attention they deserve.
I will let you know up front most of the content will involve the environment and issues with animal rights.
In October, Robert Kennedy Jr. spoke at DePauw about the environment and I realize that his speech turned some people off. If you read what he had to say, Kennedy hits the nail on the head in a lot of areas.
I know a few people who attended the event and it's unfortunate that some of his language blinded people to the message he was presenting but I truly believe what he speaks about is very important. With an issue so important, those in a position of influence must remember to sell the issue and not their books.
For those who will come at me for my last remark -- I will purchase and read Mr. Kennedy's book; I think he has the capability of helping change the outlook of our world (environmentally speaking) and we need more people like him to stand tall and fight for what we all know to be right. But when the public looks to become more informed about an issue, they don't need someone peddling their merchandise. I've had some tell me it reminded them of a late night sales pitch on QVC.
Anyway, I will be posting some blogs about issues I believe in and would like to hear what environmental issues concern others. firstname.lastname@example.org.
If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer. But if he spends his days as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is deemed an industrious and enterprising citizen.
