I also have to live with the reality of knowing that my stance and contribution have probably not changed one damned thing :-) Ah well...to
thine own self be true - right? I'm not actually anti-car, and ironically nobody loves a road trip like I do
I - like you - know many others that take these things seriously. War and peace - hunger - ecology - civil rights - all of it.
My stance is the same, Spira.
And yes, we did make a difference. We DO make a difference.
Not very pronounced, but a difference all the same. And there are plenty of our 'kids' (whether you have children or not, our generation certainly
did have an impact - which is now 'resurfacing' even though it never really went away) who are still on the bandwagon for environmentalism, peace, and
equality as well as freedom. They might think
it's a 'new' idea - but oh well. That's fine...
they're still carrying on the 'good fight' even if they think it was an original crusade. Sometimes kids don't remember where they got their
ideas/principles from....but as they grow older, they will.
Empathy is a thing that just doesn't seem to stick the landing very often....but it never dies.
Count me IN!!! (Just give me a few minutes to throw some stuff into a backpack, take the recycling to the curb, and count up my piggy bank to pitch
in for gas....where we going? Grand Canyon!!??? COOL!)
