In looking at the battle between keeping Olympus Hills Park a bird sanctuary, or putting in a mountain bike track, I like to think of what our descendants who will inherit this area, will think.

A hundred years from now, if the bike track gets put in, how many of them will say, “Thank goodness our forefathers (and mothers) had the foresight and wisdom to put in this old track”?

If the area remains wild, how many of them will say, “Thank goodness our forefathers had the wisdom and foresight to keep this tiny area unspoiled as a nature preserve”?

Which do you think is more likely?
