Word to the world, the Bubbles is an open posting thread.
Maybe you've heard or been told the same thing I have. With all of the pollution in the world, fighting for the ecology is pointless and in vain. When I've been told this in the past, I tend to shake my head and move on… generally quietly cleaning up the mess left behind by said ignorant polluting person.
Yesterday, however, I found vindication for my own personal green reasons.
Once one of the most endangered species in America, the bald eagle is making a thriving comeback. It made me smile as I read the local paper (which rarely happens). Per the Argus Press of Owosso, there are now more than 700 breeding pairs in Michigan alone.
It's an amazing population leap from the 70s, when there were just 85.
A friend of mine has even told me we have at least one pair living here in Shiawassee County. Although I've not found anything online to substantiate her claim, I learned several years ago to never argue with a teacher! It tends to accumulate homework.
There's an adage which I've heard many times over the years. It is generally attributed to the Native Americans. "We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children." Future Soapettes, I'm very happy to say, you won't have to read about these grand symbols of our country. They are alive and thriving. Because we care.
So, what's on your mind?
