Do Something

"We are what we do, not what we say." 
- David Suzuki 

The time has come for all of us, as global citizens, to step up our game. We need to be more conscious of the fact that everything we do or don't do affects us and the planet in some way 
- so please, make your actions count!

Below is a very powerful speech given by 13 year old Severn Suzuki to the United Nations on behalf of ECO, the Environmental Children's Organization.

Thanks, G. I miss all of you too. But there just don't seem to be enough hours in my day to blog regularly at the moment. Hopefully that will change soon... I'm working on it!

I know this video, it's powerful. But, indeed, we are what we say, because we do what we mean, true or false. Our World's Models push us to achieve false objects, to figure out ambiguos thoughts, to reach negative goals. Saying: we are what we do...it is a interpretative diagnosis of what we are saying, the results. Saying: we are what we say....it is a causal diagnosis about our inner function. What she says is terribly true. Bye friend, let's go on...

Hi Ermanno - I agree with you: We have been led to a great extent by a society which as whole does not seem to grasp the difficult situation we are placing ourselves in. But it's time for us all to wake up and do something, anything... consume less, recycle, go organic when possible - just be more conscious in general.

As individuals on our own, it doesn't seem like much. But as more and more of us adjust our thinking and our habits, collectively we can and will make a difference... perhaps enough to turn it all around.
