"I am the American Dream. I am the epitome of what the American Dream basically said. It said, you could come from anywhere and be anything you want in this country. That's exactly what I've done."
Happy Earth Day, my Little Blades!!! I have quoted Whoopi today because the truth is -- the American Dream is alive. As alive as ever -- and though our country has been fumbling as of late -- the dream never dies as long as we keep it alive.
And thus, this day in which we celebrate our earth, I am quoting Whoopi because what she said about America is true of the environment. We can come from anywhere and make this world into anything we want it to be. So long as we have a dream. So long as we care. So long as we believe.
So... today, pick up a piece of trash. recycle your old papers and don't drive if you don't have to. Sign legislation that you believe in so that together we can make a change in this country and the great wide world beyond.
NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council) is a great place to start. They have a fantastic website and are always doing all they can daily to make this world a healthier place to live in. For animals and wildlife and human beings. Together. So is BioGems Defender.
Do what you can.
And when people tell you that you're a dreamer, tell them what John Lennon said, "I'm not the only one."
I am here too. And I am fighting the good fight to make this world healthier and happier so that it may last longer and be around for our great-grandchildren.
It begins with one person. Just like the American Dream. And dreams -- they're contagious. Spread the word today. You'll be happy you did!
