Stretching Our Minds to Include the Whole World | Care2 Causes

As challenging as it may be to stretch our minds this far, to become patriots of (and hence caretakers of) Earth, is paramount. Unless we educate our children to see beyond provincialism and artificial boundaries, there is little hope that we will be wise and far-seeing enough to be global solutionaries who recognize connections and make choices with the health of all people, all species, and the ecosystem in mind. And even though this may not come very naturally, it is not hard to do this. There are so many tools in our modern world for learning about, loving, and caring for the myriad species that abound on this planet and for the habitats that sustain them. While we may still love our individual places, our towns, our sports’ teams and our countries, we can also embrace a biosphere that needs our love, too. Our localism can and must be balanced with our globalism.
