Paying it forward

The elections are coming up in Norway, and as usual politicians are fighting their seats participating in debates and trying to convince us that they are the solution for all the challenges in this country. As if they don’t know that we are among the luckiest people on earth having won the lottery ticket it is to be fortunate enough to live in Norway.

To me elections are simple. I cast my vote for the ones that are prepared to take care of the one thing that truly matters; nature. I can’t see that there is any other choice than to make sure that what we give our children, our grandchildren and our great grand children a life in the same amazing nature as we have been able to enjoy. I don’t want to have to tell them that I was among those who thought it didn’t matter what I did.

I’m not going to tell anyone what to vote, that’s got to be up to each and every one of us. But I’m truly hoping that people will think twice before voting for those who do not recognise that it is important to take care of nature.

But voting isn’t all I can do to pay it forward, and since we became parents we have spent a lot of time trying to give our son the same love of nature as we feel every time we are out and about. I think we have succeeded, and I wish that it will last.
