From Making Waves
In TIME magazine’s Heroes of the Environment, Cameron Diaz was praised for taking a stand for the environment. Why? For asking questions. Sounds simple but if you think about it, we spend so much of our time looking for answers that we forget about the power of questions.
As TIME rightly points out, it’s easy for celebrities to put on an earnest face and tell us average folks to start driving hybrid cars and investing in solar panels because, unlike the average person, they don’t gasp at the cost of a hybrid car or a row of solar panels. But unlike the average celebrity, Diaz isn’t telling us what to do. Instead, she’s asking questions and asking you to start asking questions, as well. Traveling across America she’s posing the questions, “where does your water come from? How about the air you breathe and the food you eat?”
