Inheritance


It is not enough to prepare our children for the world;

we must also prepare the world for our children.

We certainly have a ways to go in being good stewards for the earth that our children will inherit.

Is that orange bit South America? (because it looks just like it!)

I hope we can clean all of the messes up, P. It feels so overwhelming.

Hello Peggy,

Succinct and very appropriate!

Meri, it's so true, isn't it. But we can never forget or abdicate our commission.

Bee, yes, that's South America! Good eye, you maven of geography! :-) Overwhelming? Absolutely. That's why I prefer to look at the grass-roots level of things. It reminds me that on a personal basis, there is so much we can do. The change, indeed, begins with the face in the mirror.

Julie, how wonderful to see you again! I agree; suffering children pull on my heartstrings more than almost any other image. Maybe it's because they are the most vulnerable part of our society. Yet, I have to believe there is hope, and it begins with each one of us. :-)

Sherri, thanks so much for stopping in!

And we are all children of the world, no matter our age. This is a new quote for me and I like it. Thanks for posting it.
