12. Great links and great post.
I especially liked that you pointed out that we can be a "part" of the solution. The changes we make in our own lives do not have to change the entire world. They can't. But, it's contributing to changing the world. I think in our society, we're so used to hearing about the "rugged American individualist" that we have a hard time switching gears and seeing ourselves as part of a whole. But we are and we need to start thinking like that.

Every bit (or part) helps.
