“Saving the planet will only happen when all peoples come together to recognize the sacredness of all life, not just human, and to begin to live more gently and respectfully on the Earth. I pray it is not too late and that our political leaders will take action now.”
In recent years, I have attempted to further support our environment by raising bees. However, despite doing everything that experienced beekeepers told me to do, four out of five years, all my bees died as a direct result of climate change. I have a large garden and several fruit trees. I fear that my crops and flowers may not be pollinated because of a lack of bees.
Saving the planet is not something that can be done by any one couple, like my husband and I, acting alone. Nor is it something that can be done by any one political party, but together you have the power, if you have the will, to really make significant changes that are needed right now. Furthermore, Canada may not be able to save the planet, but we can certainly become a leader and a model for active change that will encourage other countries to follow suit.
