Hero Worship

"I don't really know why I care so much. I just have something inside me that tells me that there is a problem, and I have got to do something about it. I think that is what I would call the God in me.
All of us have a God in us, and that God is the spirit that unites all life, everything that is on this planet. It must be this voice that is telling me to do something, and I am sure it's the same voice that is speaking to everybody on this planet — at least everybody who seems to be concerned about the fate of the world, the fate of this planet."
- Wangari Maathai

I think I have a new hero.

  1. Is that the same voice that tells me to buy ice cream on my way home from work?

    This reminds me of the book I'm reading right now. It's called The Lost Chord, by Ian Thomas. It's humanistic, and all about God and stuff. I'm enjoying it.
