This week as the brutal 'War Against Nature' raged on, the conscious world fought back as hundreds of thousands of people from around the globe united...
Last week I had the chance to sit down with a group of college students and new graduates to pick their brains on how kids these days are starting their careers.
"Save the Whales" was a rallying cry of 1970's environmentalism. The great sea mammals had been hunted to the brink of extinction and grassroots activists rallied to save them. But there might not have been any whales left to protect if the world hadn't embraced petroleum in place of whale oil a century earlier.
Our education system focuses on many essential factors intended to create a platform for success for our children. But far too often we overlook the u...
It's tough to get rich saving the world, and graduates committed to social justice have a hard time competing in earned income with their counterparts who study, say, engineering, math and computer science.

We arrived at the picnic area near the Billy Goat trailhead and the kids made sandwiches and ate lunch before we started on our hike. Some of the youth got a good work out running through the park to catch falling leaves before they made landfall.
I don't want to be there to validate every experience for my children. I don't want them to think my presence is required for something to be worthwhile. I want them to be able to live the moment on their own and know how to appreciate it for themselves.
