"We do not inherit the earth from our parents. We borrow it from our children."
On a sunny but cool Sunday afternoon we went to see the IMAX film, The Coral Reef. In a manner unique to IMAX the film vivdly depicts the beauty of Coral Reefs and the devastation resulting from global warming, over-fishing and irresponsible logging. Check out the link and the trailer--and if possible, go see this wonderful film when it reaches your area.
It was, overall, an experience of spectacular underwater beauty but one that sent me home saddened by the lack of leadership in protecting our environment from the greed and insensitivity of those who have no long-term plans. Change is within the power of our leaders but many are politically obligated to those who only want to "get theirs" now-- just in case conscientious leadership of the future might demand environmental accountability.
