Admiration for Jane Goodall

Dr Jane Goodall Speaks At Taronga Zoo
I really adore Jane Goodall.
I recently listened to an interview with her on NPR and she is one powerful lady.
She was discussing her new book, Hope for Animals and Their World.
From the sound of it, the book is truly inspiring. How we should not give up hope...
that just one determined person can make a huge impact.
She really has taken her passion and created that into her life's work.
Something we all wish we were doing.
I really enjoyed learning more about her work at her website.
She also has a program for our youth, called...
Roots & Shoots: Empowering youth to make a positive change happen.
Dr. Jane states..
"Roots creep underground everywhere and make a firm foundation. Shoots seem very weak,
but to reach the light, they can break open brick walls. Imagine that the brick walls are all the
problems we have inflicted on our planet. Hundreds and thousands of roots and shoots,
hundreds and thousands of young people around the world, can break through these walls.
We CAN change the world."

A program making positive change in our communities, for our animals and our environment.

Don't you just love that!

Anyway....just a short post to share my thoughts on an inspirational lady!
enjoy :)
