It has become clear to those of us working in the field that engaging in superficial co-existence projects with no foreseeable end merely creates false hopes of peace and impressions of possible safety and security.

You know the "Coexist" bumper sticker? It bugs me. I think it's simply setting the bar way too low. I don't want to settle for coexisting, I want to live life boldly, freely, passionately, and I want to connect with others, even if just for a fleeting moment.

We need to realize there is a connection between all things and that our behavior has a very real impact on the environment around us.
