“This is the true joy in life: Being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one, being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it what I can. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.” George Bernard Shaw

Hear from Camp Blue Skies founder Dick Sesler, 2014 SEED20 Award Winner.

It is astonishing the amount of food that is cheap, calorie dense, addictive, and almost nutrient-free. It comes in three sometimes overlapping categories: filler, processed foods, and fast foods.??
