In this month’s issue of Australian magazine Madison ex-Home and Away starlet Isabel Lucas talks about her commitment to ending whaling (which earned her a warrant for her arrest – go you good thing!) and her advice on how to approach dealing with the many confronting issues in the world.
Isabel pulls no punches about why she hates whaling, saying “.. it’s so cruel, it’s absolutely barbaric”: no beating around the bush there! She describes the horror of seeing slaughtered pilot whales in the water around her as she and other activists performed a peace paddle, and affirms her willingness to do it all over again. Respect! In her words,
“Why am I passionate? Because it’s so cruel, it’s absolutely barbaric. I’m really comfortable with the media attention I’ve helped secure for this cause, but whether or not I was in the industry, this would be something I would choose to be involved in. I think there are many issues in the world that need to be attended to, but you also can’t give your energy to everything. I’m dealing with one thing at a time.”
Perhaps you disagree with her position that we should choose just one issue and focus on it, but I’d take a guess that most ecorazzi readers are already aware, active and awesome anyway – so this advice might be just the encouragement that a newbie greenie needs to get started.
