Remember childhood? The dreams we had, the music we listened to, the beliefs we held so firmly in our grasp. Life was tasted. Every moment. So exciting.
Did we fix anything? Change anything? Make that difference we wanted to?
Are the children in Africa fed and warm? Did the the Great apes stop disappearing? The pandas repopulate the wild?
There’s still so much left to do, even more than when we began. And still we play with our time as if it’s infinite.

Very true and poignant, Noreen. We must fight the good fight and not forget the hourglass will not flip over when the bottom is full.
