I'm a writer because I have stage fright.
In honor of Earth Day, I wanted to draw attention to Pulitzer Prize winner Elizabeth Kolbert, for her book The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History. She writes about the devastating impact mankind has had on many other species occupying the planet. It is important for us to consider her words and to act to preserve the vital and delicate ecosystems both near and far from our homes. This is not only responsible, it is also necessary for our survival.
