Happy Birthday Jane Goodall!

A historical view of Jane Goodall’s life work
"Chimpanzees … have been living for hundreds of thousands of years in their forest…never overpopulating, never destroying the forest. I would say that they have been in a way more successful than us as far as being in harmony with the environment."
Living a Life and a Legacy
Jane Goodall is such an honorable person. She is leaving quite a legacy by following her dreams and passion. She has lead the way for animal rights and ecological preservation.
Which lead me to this thought … Mother Teresa didn’t start her life work in India until she was 40. What beauty and love she brought into our world. Hope for the poverty stricken and an example for us all. Quite a legacy.
And one last thought, Malala Yousafzai was only 14 when she made headlines and, consequently, helped girls worldwide be brave enough to fight for their educational rights (even against the Taliban). Yes, another legacy.
Jane Goodall is in good company with many of the inspirational women of our time.
It’s never too late and it’s never too early to make a difference.
