Fast forward now to another awareness: our damaged environment.
A longtime close friend shared a column that is causing me second thoughts. In it, the writer shares her ‘aha’ moment on extreme climate changes as she questions the wisdom of flying. To far-away places.
Although environmentally conscious, I have managed to turn a blind eye to flying and its effect on our environment. Because I want to continue to experience other countries, religions, people, food, customs in different parts of the world. I want to continue to learn. Like I learned about the secret war in Laos. I want to grow more. I want to know more.
But when one of our sons writes: “We humans need to seriously think about and deal with the rift with our Natural World. We are out of sync….” then it’s time to study and reflect on our delicate world climate.
To travel or not to travel...that is the question.
