"That's how people who make a difference think and live."
I found this today as I was reading a parenting book, and it struck me as a good explanation for why I'm still trying to eat as locally and sustainably as I can. No, I can't singlehandedly change the food system in this country - or even in this town. But by choosing to buy local/organic/sustainable products whenever I can, at least I'm doing something. It's not as obvious as throwing a starfish back into the ocean, but when I drive past the vegetable lady's house or the farm market where we shop in the summer, I think to myself, "Helped that one."
