I LOVE "ON BEING". IT HAS OPENED MY EYES TO SO MANY THINGS. I LISTEN ON MY SUNDAY DRIVE TO WORK AT 7 AM. THIS LAST SHOW IN PARTICULAR REALLY TOUCHED MY "HEART STRINGS". I AM SO VERY SAD AND CONCERNED WITH THE CONDITION OF OUR OCEANS,RAIN FORRESTS AND OVERALL ENVIORMENT. I HAVE BEEN SLOWLY MAKING SOME LIFESTYLE CHANGES. I AM TRYING TO DO MY PART AND TEACH MY CHILDREN AS WELL. I THINK SYLVIA EARLE REALY OPENED MY EYES (EVEN MORE) TO THE DESPERATE STATE OF OUR OCEANS AND HOW MUCH WE CONSUME. I SLOWLY HAVE BEEN CONVERTING TO A VEGETERIAN DIET. THE ONLY THING I COULDN'T QUITE LET GO OF WAS SEAFOOD. I HAVE ALWAYS ENJOYED FISH,CRAB,SUSHI,EVEN CANNED FISH. BUT, KNOWING WHAT I KNOW, I CANNOT CONTINUE TO EAT SEA CREATURES THAT ARE HANGING ON TO THEIR EXISTENCE. I STOPPED EATING LAND ANIMALS FOR SPIRITUAL,ETHICAL,AND ENVIORMENTAL REASONS. I HAVE READ ABOUT THE TROUBLE MARINE LIFE HAS BEEN EXPERIENCING AS WELL AND HOW MUCH IT IS EXPLOITED. TODAYS SHOW WITH SYLVIA EARLE HAS COMPLETELY CONVINCED ME TO JUST GIVE UP THE SUSHI AND CRAB LEGS. MARINE LIFE IS AS IMPORTANT TO THE EARTH AS ANY OTHER KIND OF LIFE. LIFE IS LIFE, PERIOD. AS SYLIA PUT IT, EVEN A LEAF IS AN AMAZING LIFE FORCE, IT GIVES US AIR THROUGH PHOTOSYNTHESIS. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS "AN INSIGNIFICANT LIFE". THANK YOU FOR THE WONDERFUL SHOWS YOU BROADCAST. IT GIVES ME HOPE. SINCERELY, KATIE SALVATORI
