“We travel together, passengers on a little spaceship, dependent on its vulnerable reserves of air and soil, all committed, for our safety, to its security and peace. Preserved from annihilation only by the care, the work and the love we give our fragile craft.” –  Adlai Stevenson

On this Veteran’s Day – 11/11/11 – as we honor and remember our brave veterans, let us pause and think about what each of us can do to protect the earth for ourselves and for future generations.
