My dear WordPress Family,
You must feel that I am as far above the world as Major Tom.
(His Vincent cover is fantastic)
While the computer and wifi are catching the signal between Jupiter and Mars, I lassoed my scattered thoughts, stories and photographs to bounce off the back side of Mercury – and hopefully their trajectory will reach Earth. Earth looks pretty scary from up here, and I am told that many species are asking what have the humans done to their paradise.
I told my friend Giovanni that these young activists (in the above image) need mentors. Anger reaches no one in positive ways. He replied and said, ‘I know a lot of those people.’
It makes people react in defensive mode.
This group might be equally willing to pick up trash along the rio while waving those same posters. A grounded and sensitive leader can help them find an effective voice.
There is hope; a growing number of amazing people are crossing paths, moving forward in quiet ways in behalf of the planet.
There seems to be an uptick of positive young leaders – quietly making a difference. I witnessed many people – young and old – who burn with the desire to learn and do more.
There have been World Environment and Global Big Day events. The municipality has showered these quiet activists with good publicity and opportunities for events.
