Stop whining and start changing

I am so tired of whiners. Johnny’s mom doesn’t make him clean the bathroom, why should I? Suzie mom doesn’t make her take out the trash, why should I? China and India doesn’t clean up all their air, water and food problems, why should USA? South Carolina doesn’t clean up all their contaminated rivers, why should Iowa? New York City doesn’t fix all their problems, why should Cedar Rapids?

I get it. Change is hard. Over consumption and greed are depleting and destroying our resources. Our water, land, oil, and gas are not unlimited. We have only so much on this planet. We will have to change one way or the other. We are all connected on this planet.

Stop whining, start doing. Look around and clean up the mess you are causing in your home, your school, your university, your business, your city, and your state and be a part of the change. Become a better homemaker, student, farmer, politician, consumer, accountant, investor, and person to make a better future. Use your skills you have to help save our land, waters, and people. I will continue to learn, educate, support, and change. I will stop whining and start changing.
