I have a great respect for the environment and delicate balance of our
ecological systems. We must instil in our children an overriding respect
and love of the environment and Mother Earth, before she is irreversibly
damaged. Our life and our children’s lives and future depend on it. We
all live on very thin layer of the planet which is capable of sustaining
life, and once this is damaged we all have major problems. Our children
must learn that respect for one another, the environment should take
priority over greed and money and power. Not an easy task, but a
necessary one nevertheless. Our way of thinking must change somewhat.
Success and striving to be the best are great, but at what costs. This is
the delicate balance that we as a society need to understand, and instil
in our children.
