Why should I care if your children die from dirty water; polluted air; CFCs in the environment; plastic in everything that they ingest & breath; radiation from microwave towers, communication networks & mobile phones; radiation from nuclear fallout and artificial microbes bred for specific uses?

You just sit back and let everything happen because you believe that you can't make a difference, but the truth is; everyone can make a difference if there is enough of us. It's time to put greed aside and start living with the knowledge that you can make a difference.
