In Good Magazine

by The Editors on August 13, 2009’s Matt McClain explains why he does the work he does in Good Magazine‘s The Water Issue with a story titled Wave Goodbye.

However, the more I studied the ocean, the more attuned I became to the peril in which we have placed it. I now work full time to protect our seas, waves, and beaches. I do it to honor my father, a native Hawaiian who introduced me to the sea when I was very young, and to honor all the others who have come before me. I do it for the benefit of those who will come after. But most of all, I do it to in some small way repay all the gifts that Mother Ocean has given, and continues to give.

“Well said,” we say typing one-handed while wiping a tear from our face.
