I am a supporter of the World Peace 2000 organization
Our world is our environment. It is the air we breath, the water we drink and the food we eat. It is where we live, play and love. It is our home -- OUR HOME!!!
If we do not take care of it we will destroy ourselves.
Given that we live in this world and we have been instructed to be stewards of it, I have included in this section links to organizations and groups that I support either actively or in intent. On my page titled "Pathways" are links to organizations I support who understand the concept of stewardship and have put it into practice.
I have always felt a kinship with Our Brother Wolf and have begun a section on wolves on this site. I have included links to sites specifically about wolves. Please check some of them out.
