Today I drove from Madison to Ames, Ia. I have told you before that I enjoy driving, I listen to the radio and enjoy the scenery. The weather was perfect today, so the ride was very pleasant. As I drove, looking at all the beauty in nature, I started wondering what the world will look like in 100 years. 200 years. 300 years.
The last century has seen more change in our world than any other time in history. Technology has affected how we live, changing the world more with each day. Change is happening at an exponential rate. I wonder what the world will be like for our grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Are we doing all we can to make the world a better place or are we destroying our planet?
My challenge for you is to think of ways to leave the world better than you found it. The earth needs us to care for it. Our descendants deserve a place as beautiful as possible.
Our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children’s future. And we are all mortal. — John F. Kennedy
You gave a beautiful place to live. Please help us to better care for our planet. Help us to leave this life having made the world better a better place because we were here.
