Words of Wisdom

"An error does not become a mistake until you refuse to learn from it"

WOW is that true, or what?  There are so many ways you can apply this quote.  So many things in history that if we fail to learn from we are doomed to repeat...

Polluting and squandering resources comes to mind immediately.   Industries have polluted, squandered precious natural resources and STILL CONTINUE TO DO SO.  Why are individuals, companies, leaders, countries and this WORLD not learning and correcting past mistakes?  Why do we continue to allow globally destructive behaviors like destroying rain forests, emitting greenhouse gases, polluting rivers, lakes streams, soil, air to name a few?  It's a sin against humanity really...a sin that humans will ultimately pay the price for..if not today, then future generations.  It's sad....

I think we all need to work TOGETHER to stop past and present errors and mistakes from becoming irreversible and indelible on our planet.  We CAN learn from past misconduct, past mistakes of polluting, plundering and squandering of resources, and causing global warming.  We CAN stop putting the almighty dollar first, and not thinking before acting.   We CAN make positive changes together.
