What a beautiful valley we live in, what a beautiful planet we live on.
In highschool, at Northfield Mount Hermon, I remember learning that the words ecology and economy shared the same root word, "eco," meaning home. This fact did more to help me see the connection between needing to take care of both our economy and our planet than nearly anything else. It dawned on me that if we take better care of our home, it will be that much more likely to take better care of us.
It really is as simple as this.
