The Bravest Woman I Know

Posted on Monday, July 19th, 2010 at 2:00 pm by Lee Welles

In the Gaia Girls books, Gaia often says, “Be brave.”

Julia Butterfly Hill is the bravest woman I know. She tells it like it is. I think it is interesting how listening to this level of truth-telling makes even a greenie like me squirm. One-by-one, we will need to move away from our disposablility consciousness. Can you pick ONE THING you currently throw “away,” and make a new choice? I dare you. Pick ONE thing in your life that you currently throw “away,” and choose differently.

After all, how can we tackle the BIG problems if we are not even willing to tackle a little thing like using a paper cup?
