Each Individual, Climate Change, the Dung Beetle and the Starfish

“As an individual I cannot do anything to save our world’s climate. That fight is for the big nations. I personally cannot make a difference. So, I will do nothing”

Edmund Burke would strongly disagree with your attitude and admonish you thus!

“Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.” – Edmund Burke

And the tiny African Dung Beetle would just laugh at you!

So – Put that one starfish back in the sea.

Reading and Digestion

The next time you read something, consider Edmund Burke’s observation:

‘To read without reflecting is like eating without digesting.’

Indy and the Rainbow Bridge

The Serpent and the Dove

Jesus advised His team:”Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.” KJV
