I just wrote a lovely little post about Earth Day. It was optimistic and cheery and feel-good.
Then I read this post from Andrea at A Garden of Nna Mmoy, which was just the reality-check and kick in the pants that I needed.
Earth Day - environmentalism - is not about feeling good. It's about changing the planet. And change is hard.
I won't try to re-write what Andrea has already written so eloquently. But I will ask you to click here and read it.
