Footprints in the Windsm # 881

We are throwing life away—in the cornstalks, in the landfills, in the food grains we are putting into ethanol—and in the way we label and shut down people. It is a matter of scale, not of essential difference: whether it is genocide or refusing to hear another. The latter is only less visible, more subtle, but it removes the good that could come from these people just as effectively.

So if we change our images to growing people and producing more with what we have and throw away, to generating more from less, to increasing what we do with what we have, to the opportunities in front of us, then we generate, then we live, then we love.

Please pass it on.
