Today's lesson for Papua New Guinea

From PAUL OATES in Queensland, Australia 

Spraying some cows and calves this morning for Buffalo fly I noticed something significant. While the cows looked on, I took the pictures of the flowering gum and a strange narrow trail in the grass. The trail was made by millions of tiny feet going to and from my compost bin. An ant's nest has discovered rich pickings and were making the most of it, walking between the bin and their nest.
Now why would I think that very significant? Well, one ant can't make much impression on the landscape but many can and do.
Likewise, if one person stands up against corruption, not much happens. If many do however, they can and will make an impression.
