For decades when I took my 7th graders to Port Isobel or Fox Island, a CBF staffer would read The Lorax when it was lights out. I read it to my 3 sons and my students. Not because I love Dr. Seuss (though I do) but because of the message it conveyed. I am very much a tree hugger, always have been. I make no apologies for my love of nature my my intense passion about preserving it. The last page speaks volumes:
"Unless someone like YOU cares a whole awful lot, it's never going to get better. It's NOT!"
It seems the world is turned upside down--it's easy to forget what one person can do to save this planet. I need to become proactive again. I need to go out on a limb for my beliefs.
My Soul Collage card today is called The Lorax. I am the who who speaks for the trees, the Lorax says.
