The Audacity To Hope
Today a black man became President of the United States.
Until it happened.
Obama wrote a book called The Audacity To Hope.
We too have the audacity to hope. We hope for the day that soil carbon will be traded and farmers paid fairly for what they grow,
We hope for the day when rising soil carbon levels start returning the soils to health, returning native species to the landscape, and returning hope to rural communities.
We hope for that day because it will also be the day when farmers wlll start soaking up the excess CO2 that is troubling our climate and threatening our childrens' and grandchildrens' futures.
We hope for better times for everyone. Because we know what we can do if allowed to do it.
