Recently there has been an overwhelming amount of media coverage concerning the Doomsday Clock. This dismal piece of paper is thought to figuratively predict the end of human civilization. As the second hand moves closer to the 12 spot, scientists warn about the dangers of terrorism and most especially, global warming. This diagnosis for defeat is all well and good, but I believe there is a less tangible problem.

     Apathy will be the demise of the human race. Those who hear about the world’s tragedies and feel it has no bearing on their secure daily routines are completely wrong. Or even worse, those whe of terrorism and ozone issues. Although the task seems inconceivable today, everyone working, little by little, has the capability of making a better tomorrow. You could consider me a naive dreamer, but I believe that there is still hope. It lies in caring enough to take a stand to turn back time.
