I’ve been catching up on some TV programs that I had recorded on my DVR and as of yet hadn’t watched and tonight I decided to start watching The National Parks series by Ken Burns.
Simply put who is our Teddy Roosevelt today? Who is our John Muir? The dedication with which these men spent their lives working to preserve, rather than destroy, our natural treasures is inspiring to say the least. Are there any men like that today? If so where are they?
As I watch the headlines coming out of Copenhagen that the latest set of climate talks are going nowhere I wonder just where our Teddy Roosevelt is when we so desperately need one.
