We have to try

The Artdog Quote-Pairing of the Week

This quote from Theodore Roosevelt says, "It is hard to fail but wore never to have tried to succeed."

The task is immense. The stakes couldn’t be higher. Our rainforests have often been called the “lungs of the Earth.” But they’re disappearing in literal clouds of smoke. Or in caravans of logging trucks. Or they’re being mined, unsustainably replaced, dried out, and otherwise destroyed at a truly devastating rate. It won’t be easy to reverse that trend, but we have to try.

Rainforests, like coral reefs, are extremely valuable to our planet’s survival. There are things we can do to help save them. But we must do them now!

I kicked off last month with a video about climate change refugees. It featured a call to proactive action. This month, I’m pairing quotes about being proactive in one’s life with quotes about climate change. It’s not too late to mitigate the effects–we must resolve to try!

Mirror moment: What are we doing?

The Artdog Quote of the Week 


What we sow, we reap. What goes around comes around. It’s an ageless lesson too many of us never truly seem to learn or take to heart.

How do you answer the question: What are you doing for yourself and others . . . and the world?
