Why We're Here

9/11 was an event similar to Pearl Harbor - a bubble-bursting of our false sense of security and isolationism, the illusion that we're separate from the rest of the world's problems. The validity of this realization is much more apparent today. The internet, cell phones, email, satellite TV and phones all strengthen our interconnectedness to an integrated world. In terms of the environment, this is very obvious: polluted air and water don't stop their movement because of nationally-defined borders. Though not as obvious, the spread of disease, healthy or unhealthy psychological and cultural attitudes is no less pervasive.

In some ways, we could say that just like we can't have a non-polluted country when the rest of the world is highly polluted, we can't be truly healthy when the rest of the world has such huge health and environmental problems. And with more resources comes more responsibility.
