Global Warming is the single greatest threat mankind has ever faced.  If we don't make massive changes to the way we live in the next 20 years, the world our children and their children will inherit will be very bleak indeed.  For them, we must change.  Now.

Said to be Handwritten on Mother Theresa's Wall:

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centred; Forgive them anyway

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;  Be successful anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; Build anyway.

If  you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; Give the world the best you've got anyway

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;  It was never between you and them anyway.
