“Are you not supposed to be the generation that is supposed to care about the environment?” was the opening line from my financial management professor in a class this week.
As the audience hands went up, he asked yet another question “Does caring about the environment not also include caring about your neighbor?” People has mixed answers, and he responded “Don’t just talk, ACT and start with your neighbor”.
He really nailed it on the head and I think in this current age where we are so focused on the “I” we have forgotten that our actions have significant impacts on the people around us. People are the most powerful enablers of society and more and more we seem to disrespect that change of the world has to begin with ourselves and the people around us.
