When they come to understand the world we grew up in. When they look for a role model from those that went before, from you.
How much did we know about how we lived and how destructive it was?
Why did we think that a consumption based system would lead anywhere?
How were we able to watch so many wars, destruction, murder and death, just pass us by?
Why did we allow ourselves to be dictated to by big business?
Why did we get so distracted on the endless spewing media sources that crammed our lives so full of rubbish?
Why did we let the planet get so polluted?
What did we do about these things?
How did we help those around us?
What did we do in our local community to make a change?
Where did we spend or waste our time if we weren’t working on these things?
How would you answer these questions to your kids, the inheritance of all the effort invested to make the world a better place?
I hope for many that maybe they are never asked.
Please take stock of your own life. Where are we all making investment for those coming after us?
