#50 / Bear With Me

Here is another recommended article from The Sun magazine. The article I recommended in my blog post yesterday was published in the December 2019 issue. The article I am recommending here is titled, "A Test Of Our Compassion," and was published in the January 2020 issue. This most recent article presents a discussion between Savannah BarnesLouisa Willcox, and David Mattson. Willcox and Mattson live close to Yellowstone National Park, and they have devoted their lives to advocating for grizzly bears. As Willcox and Mattson put it, "grizzly-bear recovery is not a technocratic problem; it is a spiritual and moral one." 

So many of our current problems are!

Here is the statement in the article that spoke most directly to me. It is more than just about grizzlies: 

Do we want a deeper, richer relationship with nature, or do we want to just kill everything and live through our smartphones?

I know which side I'm on.
