Celebrating Earth; it’s green!

Today is International Forests Day.  “In this first year of implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the International Day of Forests focuses on their role in supporting water systems.Investing in forests is an insurance policy for the planet.”

We look forward to John Muir’s birthday when we celebrate Earthday, April 22.  

   From Wikipedia:     In 1969 at a UNESCO Conference in San Francisco, peace activist John McConnell proposed a day to honor the Earth and the concept of peace, to first be celebrated on March 21, 1970,the first day of spring in the northern hemisphere.  A month later a separate Earth Day was founded by United States Senator Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in first held on April 22, 1970. Nelson was later awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom Award in recognition of his work.  While this April 22 Earth Day was focused on the United States, an organization launched by Denis Hayes, who was the original national coordinator in 1970, took it international in 1990 and organized events in 141 nations.

Celebrate this place we live that is life and soul sustaining.  It’s a gift. Look ahead and plan to get outside on Earthday.

Want to remind you about Wild Wind Foundation’s recent release of a DVD called  Forever Wild 2010,  showing one of Walkin Jim’s last concerts.  This video will fill you with joy and passion.  It will encourage you to write a letter or plant a tree or just get outside.  It will remind you how fortunate we are to live on planet Earth.

Words to Ponder:

“The passing of Pete Seeger and review of his life and body of work is a potent reminder of the power of the right song at the right time to influence a movement, or to create space in people’s hearts to look at old patterns of behavior and steer a course for better actions,”
Earth Mama, Joyce Rouse
