Doing the impossible

My Sierra Club Daily Ray of Hope today has a very important quote from Nelson Mandela.
It always seems impossible until it's done.
Here are a few things that seem impossible right now:
  • Stop using coal
  • Create all our energy from renewables
  • Ensure that everyone gets the education that will give them opportunities to use their talents and skills for their own and the common good. (Whatever that may be!)
  • Convert our agricultural system to one that provides nutritional foods to everyone using sustainable methods - without using artificial fertilizers that weaken plants so they require artificial pesticides, and where possible sourcing our food locally. (I know it's hard to source coffee, tea, spices and bananas locally to the US, for example.)
  • Peace in our time!
So let's get going to get them done!
