Our Generation is Responsible For This

What are we doing to protect and empower the next generation? How are we involved with defeating the climate crisis. Whitney Houston used to sing a very inspiring song entitled, 'The Greatest Love of All,"...  Some of the wording goes like this.

I believe the children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way.  Show them all them all the beauty they possess inside. Give them a sense of pride to make it easier. Let the children's laughter, remind us how it used to be....

Yes, the children are our future. We have a responsibility to both nurture them as well as leave them better off than we had. This song is a reminder of our responsibility to the next generation. To not only teach but to provide for them a better place.

Someone once said that that we the people don't own or inherit the earth, we are simply responsible for caring for it and passing it on to the next generation. How do we care for the earth? We do so by living sustainable lives that don't pollute Mother Earth.

One of the greatest national security threats and threat to the next generation is the global climate crisis. Caring for the next generation involves being responsible today with our goods and the earth. How we live now is directly related to the next generations tomorrow. They will unfortunately have to live with the repercussions of today's generation's irresponsibility.

It really all begins with solving simple solutions that everybody can be a part of. It requires united governments and countries creating agreements that hold each other accountable. It requires small business, local business and Fortune 500 companies to incorporate sustainability practices in their core missions and value statements and then consistently practice it.

WHOLEROLL is a company that plants trees in the Gulf of Mexico areas for every pack of tissue sold. This may seem like a small task but it is a start. A start in helping to rebuild the Gulf Coast wetlands and areas devastated by storms because of the crisis.  It helps to rebuild local communities. If every company, business and individual find out what they can do to make the earth a better place, our children no doubt will not only be the future but will be better off in it.
