You know your child is smartening up
when he starts to squirm at the smell of a
doctor’s office. You know science is
right when it’s sweltering with no rain,
a triple drought, but the developments continue.
You know the leaders are wrong when one
giant war creeps at us with hundreds of
thousands of families against us forever.
You know the cocoon of innocence no longer
cradles most children when food wars
break out in Africa. You know that the
widest love still lacks the power to spread
resources equally. You know how lucky
you are to be at the top of the economic heap.
You know there is much to do to change the
system, but wonder how to do more than change
your immediate surroundings. You know that
hard work by a small number of dedicated
people can make things better. You know you
are now part of this change, whether recorded
or not, painted or not, written or not. You know
life is too short to waste time. You know how
to squeeze everything out of this, produce a
winning recipe and feed your friends. You know
life pulls you to the corners of the earth, but each
new set brings opportunity to share and progress.
