Day 13 – Endings & Beginnings


Swan Quote

The end is the beginning.  We disembark from the ship and rush to Ushuaia airport.  30+ hours of travel ahead of me; memories that will last a lifetime behind me.

The mantra of Robert Swan have become more than words or a slogan.  They now have a sense of urgency and purpose.  They reflect what I learned and what I must do.

“The greatest threat to our planet, our survival on the planet, is the belief that it is somebody else’s problem.  It is ours.”

I am filled with excitement knowing that I and the 1,200 alumni of 2041 will be leaders in the world when the Antarctic-Environmental Protocol is up for renewal.
