To live without the need
to justify choices that will inevitably cause harm to another…
We, here at Echo Valley,
have made the decision to move away from the use of liquid propane. We
recognize that it is no longer sustainable for us or for the planet. We
no longer wish to participate in a system that is causing more harm
than good, and we are willing to try new means to avoid causing harm to
others or to the earth.
We recognize not everyone
can make decisions such as this at this time, but we hope our efforts
help others to consider whatever small or large steps are appropriate
for them to “live simply so that others may simply live” (Gandhi).
We must find new ways to
energize this planet. We can use the money, the labor, and the
to re-build a failing infrastructure. From Flint to Lafayette, and in
small towns like ours throughout this country and the world, people are
in need of help. It is time we stop the greed. It is time we stop the
destruction. It is time we replace disregard with compassion and blind
ignorance with courageous vision.
This is one drop of effort
towards that end.
Be well and keep enjoying:
