Some may be looking for a bit of insight, a flash of humor, or an idea for what to do next in their ongoing quest to be agents of healing, hope, and justice in the world. The planet needs everybody’s gifts and everyone has a part to play. Thank you for participating in the great work to protect life on Earth.
