I hear you. But as I write this, two days later, and at the end of a workday, I find that I am ready to go on. You see, my job is Environmental Education. I believe that, as I and my colleagues teach the schoolchildren about respect for nature, we can be empowering them to respect other human beings as well. In a long, roundabout sort of way, one might argue that our little education center is helping to prevent such things happening in the next generation. Or maybe I'm just being grandiose...I do that, too, sometimes.
