As far as all the horribleness that seems to continue in the world happens, all I can do is quote Dr. Seuss.

"But now," says the Once-ler,
"Now that -you're- here,
the word of the Lorax seems perfectly clear.
UNLESS someone like you
cares a whole awful lot,
nothing is going to get better.
It's not."

This could easily be read for not just what the Lorax is about, but honestly... almost every and any issue in the world today. Many of the older generation may regret the decisions they have made to get the world where it is now, everything from teaching their children racism to starting a logging company that would make toothpicks.

It is now on us. Us and our children. We need to care enough to change things and make this place a better world to live in. For everyone. No being selfish. That's how the Once-ler was. He kept biggering and biggering and biggering until he destroyed the Truffula trees and made the Swomee-swans move away because of air pollution, the Humming fish leave from the schlopp in their water, and the Bar-ba-loots migrate to find food for the crummies in their tummies. All because he wanted more money.

So, think about that message that was written by a very wise man many years ago. Start doing good. Teach your children to do good. Together, hopefully, we can take that seed of the last Truffula tree and bring the Lorax and his friends back to life.
