Erin Brockovich is a renowned Consumer Advocate and Environmental Activist who rights the wrongs daily on multiple fronts. If you or someone you love have suffered because of an environmental contaminant, medical device, or pharmaceutical, or because of something or someone else, get Erin on your side.
People always ask me what I think and what my opinion is. Well, here are a few of my thoughts and beliefs:
Because of the movie, everyone believes that I am an environmental activist. I am usually referred to as the environmentalist with cleavage. I care a great deal about the environment, but my real work and greatest challenge are trying to overcome deceits that jeopardize public health and safety.
I advocate for awareness, the truth, and a person’s right to know. I believe that in the absence of the truth, we all stand helpless to defend ourselves, our families, and our health, which is our greatest gift. As with everything, some people always go too far, too far to the right, too far to the left, and this is true of environmentalism, and now, in many instances, our issues fall on a deaf ear.
Often, I am motivated or become very inspired by a cliché. They make me think and can be true more often than not. For example, “an informed citizen is the only true repository of the American will” – Thomas Jefferson. Oh, how right he was. I believe that our perception of things becomes our reality. How you see yourself and your character can determine your fate.
Most people don’t know that my favorite movie is not “Erin Brockovich” but “Pay It Forward.” We should pay it forward but not with the expectation of seeing a reward; that is not why we do it. Please pay it forward because it is the right thing to do, reward or not.
If you follow your heart, listen to your gut, and extend your hand to help another, not for any agenda, but for the sake of humanity, you will find the truth.
