Another way: Spend some time today naming your personal heroes. Who inspires you, and why? How can you move that inspiration into action in your own life? In other words, how can you honor your hero?
One of my heroes is biologist Amy Rogers. She's working to save pristine parcels of the Ecuadorian rainforest from clear-cutting and industrial development. It's not easy. She put in ridiculous amounts of time, in the face of huge bureaucracy and on a tiny budget. Her energy astounds me. Her dedication to preserving healthy forests for future generations inspires me. I'm going to put that into action by donating to our local version, the Greenbelt Land Trust.
I'd love to hear your story.
