I still see people throwing pesticides around like they were harmless. If we could all only be as much in love with this world as Ms. Carson was, it would be a better place.

The companies that make these pesticides unfortunately are very powerful. They hire a lot of people, and they control a lot of people. Very hard to fight them.

As a Vietnam veteran, I've been trying to convince other veterans to boycott the makers of agent orange. Those companies have yet to admit to any connection between that herbicide and cancer.
