“Unless Someone Like You Cares a Whole Awful Lot . . .”

Yesterday we took two of our grandsons to see the Dr. Seuss Exhibit at McKee Botanical Gardens.  Not only was Theodor Seuss Geisel a masterful writer of children’s books, his stories also speak to core moral issues for adults.  The Lorax is one of the featured books at McKee.   Published in 1971 it was at the forefront of the environmental movement.

I saw this  sign as a part of the Lorax exhibit.  For me its message calls out to us today:

McKee Gardens - Dr. Seuss Exhibit

We need to keep focused and maintain the great momentum we have established.

  • Continue the daily emails
  • Sign the petition.   If you miss the door to door petition, sign the one online.
  • Plan to attend the March 22 Commissioners’ hearing – 9:00 am at the County Administration building.   Wear red.  Bring a friend.  Recruit a friend if you cannot be there.  We need to have at least 500 people.  That’s what the county is scurrying around to prepare for.
  • If you have not yet made a donation to our defense fund, please do so today.
  • Check with the leaders in your neighborhood to see if they need help passing out flyers, passing petitions or organizing carpools.
  • Check back each day to catch the latest updates.

A lot of people like you and me care “a whole awful lot”.   Because we do, it can get better.  It will!

    My husband and I also walked through the Dr. Seuss exhibit at McKee Botanical Gardens (unfortunately, we did not have our grandson with us). Both of us loved the exhibit and I am glad that you applied the key message of “The Lorax” to the situation with the proposed Walee project. Thank you for bringing that message to other citizens of Indian River County. Although my husband and I are presently working with a great many other people to keep the Walee project from happening on its proposed site, you and Dr. Seuss make us even more determined to fight this thing because we really, really care “a whole awful lot”.
