I must admit, this is one of the few quotes that I have memorized, and I have since I was a young child. Jane Goodall was talking about chimpanzees in particular, but it can be applied to every organism; plants, bacteria, and animals alike. When I was younger I loved Jane Goodall and her message. I feel that the above quote is a great summation of what she stood for. Thus, I have decided to live a green life and complete research just like her (although not on chimpanzees, I let that dream go a couple of years back).
I'd invite anyone who reads this to just think about that quote and then step outside and look around. Even if you are in a big city, there are organisms all around you and they are being affected by what you do, by what I do, and by what your neighbor does. Now, I am not a 'crazy' green person trying to make you feel bad but I am just asking you to think about this. Just for one moment.
With that request I will leave you for the day. Thanks for 'listening' to my whispers, and stay tuned for more! :)
