I can relate to Dr. Rabinowitz's story. As a child, I found solace with my pets and in nature. Interacting with people was so much harder. People, especially my elementary school classmates would laugh at me when I spoke. Speech therapy gave me the tools I needed to live a normal life as an adult. I now speak fluently with people at work. I have a garden others envy. This and natural areas I've helped restore have provided habitat for the flora and fauna that I've always related to. The Earth will be healthier when we realize that people are an integral part of the natural world.
