Words of Wisdom from Jane of the Jungle

Jane Goodall is a heroine if there ever was one; a woman whom went out on a limb (pun intended) to hang (another intended one) with the chimps way back when the glass ceiling really was low.  She exposed us to a life led fearlessly.

I was very fortunate to hear her speak long ago as a child and remember being in awe of her calm fortitude even though I was so young the content didn't really resonate.

A quote from a recent interview Rachel Sarnoff of Mommy Greenest and EcoStiletto.com fame conducted w/ Ms. Goodall:

"I met so many young people as I traveled who seemed not to have hope for the future. They were depressed, angry and apathetic. “Roots & Shoots” [encourages participants to understand that ] every single one of us makes a difference every single day. We can’t live through a day without making an impact. And we all have a choice."

What do you chose to make an impact about today?
