CELEBRATING HOW FAR WE'VE COME
This particular magazine in this particular issue is celebrating 40 years of publishing. As an act of looking back and reflecting [as most of us do on our monumental birthdays] the publishers decided to put together a list of 40 improvements, or maybe journeys, that this country [and our world] have undergone in the last four decades. It is inspiring to me to see what people with a lot of passion, discipline, and vision can accomplish, especially when it betters the whole of humanity.
So to those of you who have and are working for a better world, thank you. For those of you who get up with the vision of a new earth, and then go out and work hard to make sure it becomes reality, thank you. To those of you who put good, whole food based meals on your child's plate knowing that you are giving them a future worth living, thank you. To those of you who go out to the garden each morning and every evening to pick bugs off leaves instead of spraying them with deadly chemicals, thank you. To those of you who go through your day with a smile on your face and love in your eyes, thank you. To those of you who are determined to provide organic foods at a decent price, thank you. To those of you who believe there is an alternative answer to disease and illness and demand it, thank you. To those of you who take on the government and consumer giants who are determined to hang on to the notion that "fast, cheap, and nutritionally hollow" is the way of America, thank you. And for those of you who kiss your child, give them a hug, tell them how much you love them and make time for them each day, thank you.
You all, and many more unmentioned, are the ambassadors of a new creation and we are so honored to have you.
Here's the list of Natural Health's "40 Biggest Strides". I encourage you to read them. May they inspire you to continue what you're doing and grow in place that may be new territory.
