I called this one “Enlightenment” because I feel all its definitions apply. Through my research I’m becoming enlightened about the issue of invasive animal species and the damage they’re doing. I‘m also learning how we can work together to help solve this problem. As I learn more and show my work, I can help enlighten others about this issue. And working for this cause resonates with my soul and fills my days with purpose and a feeling of enlightenment.
