“A society is defined not only by what it creates, but by what it refuses to destroy.” — John Sawhill

Slide 21

What does the future hold for us? Smog filled skies and poison cars, And broken land with useless dust  And nature’s beauty behind bars. Can I ever show my children,  (If they ever come my way) The beauty of a sunset  At the ending of the day? Can I walk into a forest,  And surround myself with trees, Yet know that it will remain,  For me to visit as I please. I know that I can today  Do all the things I’ve said,  But when today is yesterday, Will all these things be dead? This problem is enormous  As we gradually take heed, So we must fix it quickly, Using words and thoughts and deeds." From the Pachamama
