Rachel Remembered

Rachel Remembered

Yesterday marked 50 years since Rachel Carson, author of Silent Spring, passed from this life. She was a remarkable woman, bringing attention to human practices that had severely deleterious effects on the environment. She fought to make everyone aware that what we did, as unaware, uneducated,or indifferent inhabitants of this beautiful earth, could kill it. I wish to carry forth her memory and her work in my own life, even though I have not her talent, or perhaps her inner fire. Still, I care, and wish to do my part to preserve and protect the environment and our beleaguered wild animals. We need to learn to live in harmony with this world, not try to legislate it to death, drown it in toxic substances, or rape its surface in the name of greed.
