Naturally Healthy Earth Friendly Living


"You must be the change you wish to see in the world." - Mahatma Gandhi


A Legacy Of Life

by M. W. Martin

Once again, as we deepen into Spring and watch the mountains turn from blues and browns into deep, lush hues of green and ochre, we are reminded that Earth Day is just around the corner. Although this recognition of our planet is geared for everyone, I think children should be the ones to benefit in particular.

That is to say, good habits are learned at a young age and often carry on throughout one's lifetime. It's not difficult for adults to look at the world around them and ponder its fate and the delicate balance we must play as her caretaker. But children often can't see the forest for the trees.  They may have difficulty grasping the complex interrelationships between mankind and the Earth. It is one thing to tell a child that it's "not nice" to litter, but it's entirely more useful if one explains to the child exactly why it's important to reduce, reuse and recycle. Children are far more intelligent and insightful than we often give them credit for.

As April 22nd, 2003 approaches, what will you do to help strengthen the legacy for your children so that they can move forward to live on a planet that is cleaner, healthier and more beautiful than the one you grew up in? Like the mightiest of all the trees, most good things start as nothing more than a tiny seed. Plant one today and every day, not just Earth Day.
