Amazing! I’ve just learned about this today!

Let the music, the lyrics and the song take you to where your heart wants to go.

The Earth Anthem penned by poet-diplomat Abhay K was translated into Portuguese and launched in Brasilia to commemorate World Environment Day.

Abhay had written the anthem in 2008, inspired by the Upanishads and the image of the Earth taken by the Apollo 17 crew. He penned it in Russia’s St Petersburg and so far it has been translated into 30 languages.

According to IANS, he said,

“Whichever country we come from, we all have our planet in common. A tribute to her in the form of an anthem, therefore, should be able to find favour with people from all countries. Such an anthem will not only connect all of us across the world through a common musical thread but will also inspire the next generation to put the planet before themselves.”

For his Earth Anthem, he was termed ‘inspiring’ by UNESCO, Habitat for Humanity, and many others. He has plans of continuing the the Earth Anthem project by collaborating with the world’s leading musicians and singers to create consecutive editions.

TRIP DOWN HISTORY LANE

HOW DID IT BEGIN?

It seems that a lot of effort has been placed in the celebration of our planet, Mother Earth.

In the United States, the ‘Environmental Protection Agency‘ was created to assure that norms and regulations were put in place to do this country’s part in the worldwide effort to protect this planet.

At the time of this writing, it looks like all those efforts are in the process of dismantling by the current EPA top official in association with the Executive branch of the current government.

That cannot be allowed. Grassroot efforts must be undertaken once again to assure that Mother Earth is protected.

In this instance, history MUST repeat itself.

Remember, there is no ‘Planet B’!

 “We need the tonic of wildness – to wade sometimes in marshes where the bittern and the meadow-hen lurk, and hear the booming of the snipe; to smell the whispering sedge where only some wilder and more solitary fowl builds her nest, and the mink crawls with its belly close to the ground. At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be infinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.”

EARTH DAY 2018

~THERE’S A LOT DO TO STILL~

I was 20 years old in 1970.

I remember the establishment of this day. I took a summer class in college all about the environment in my country, Puerto Rico. I bought books, I read them all. I became aware of Bill McKibben (The End of Nature), Jeffrey Hollender (How To Make the World a Better Place), The Earthworks Group (50 Simple Things You Can Do series) and many more.

I was young, idealistic adult and a believer that my generation would change things.

As I look back today, it saddens me to see that I was wrong.

More than ever, there’s a lot of work to do today.

Here are some of my ‘green books’!! 

img_8875 Earth Day 1970, an event to increase public awareness of the world’s environmental problems, is celebrated in the United States for the first time.

Millions of Americans, including students from thousands of colleges and universities, participated in rallies, marches, and educational programs.

Earth Day was the brainchild of Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin, a staunch environmentalist who hoped to provide unity to the grassroots environmental movement and increase ecological awareness.

“The objective was to get a nationwide demonstration of concern for the environment so large that it would shake the political establishment out of its lethargy,” Senator Nelson said, “and, finally, force this issue permanently onto the national political agenda.”

Earth Day indeed increased environmental awareness in America, and in July of that year the Environmental Protection Agency was established by special executive order to regulate and enforce national pollution legislation.

Parkland Survivors …. “🤔 Imagine a Country that Allows its Children To Be Slaughtered 🤔 …. “!!

VALENTINE’S DAY 2018

~SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER~

Count the days.

It’s been a few days past 90 days.

I must confess that I have been in a funk since the elections of
November 8, 2016. I have experienced a gamut of emotions ranging from anger, disbelief, desperation, bafflement and so much more.

I saw no way out until the Parkland students in Florida began their movement.

I am rooting for them.

I’m rooting for the young people of this country. 

They will be the ones to effect change. It’s their time. The old dinosaurs in government will see the effect of the young on them.

I have their backs!!

… ‘AND THE CHILDREN SHALL LEAD’ … 

RedLineBBARACK OBAMA

April 19th, 2018
America’s response to mass shootings has long followed a predictable pattern. We mourn. Offer thoughts and prayers. Speculate about the motives. And then – even as no developed country endures a homicide rate like ours, a difference explained largely by pervasive accessibility to guns; even as the majority of gun owners support common sense reforms – the political debate spirals into acrimony and paralysis.

This time, something different is happening.

This time, our children are calling us to account.

The Parkland, Florida, students don’t have the kind of lobbyists or big budgets for attack ads that their opponents do. Most of them can’t even vote yet.

These young activists rock!!
