Does a stack of rocks in the forest amount to little more than a hill of beans, or do small actions like picking up stones add up to a mountainous impact?

Fracking in and of itself isn't harmful - but the way the Oil companies want to go about it (the cheap way, natch) is very harmful.

Four in 10 students in the statewide system have no consistent access to “high quality and nutritious” foods.
Kraft mac and cheese might dominate students’ pantries, but colleges nationwide are trying to change that.

Lordy, this makes me feel like a Bad Mom. And I can't wait to see that movie.

My kids live on junk. Kraft mac and cheese, is not big at the moment, but it has seen its day. Oodles of noodles is popular with one, chicken dinosaurs sort of, peanut butter and jelly Nutella, pasta, and whole grain waffles, pretty much sum up what they eat right now. On the good, they drink milk with no prob, plenty of water, and are willing to try cheeses. Coming around to yogurt, but only the kind with so much sugar it defeats the purpose.
My 8 yr old is determined to be a vegetarian because we've been to too many zoos and petting farms. My 11 year old eats some sushi, so she gives me faith that all will be well.

My husband and I eat everything under the sun, so I have the hope that some day my kids will follow suit.
