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.”

~Henry David Thoreau~

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.

Pentatonix’s Brand New Spin On John Lennon’s Classic

Putting Tears In Everyone’s Eyes

Everyone knows the John Lennon song, “Imagine” – but Pentatonix puts their own spin on it with a powerful message that everyone can take to heart! Their voices, coupled with the moving lyrics first penned by Lennon in May 1971, come together to make a rendition of the song that everyone should hear at least once in their life!

Lennon’ inspiration for “Imagine” came about when he tried to envision a world with only peace, and without the division among all people.

The song was released later that year in October, and it was an instant hit.

Since it’s release, “Imagine” has been covered by countless artists and groups hoping to share the same message of inclusion and love.

Such is the case with Pentatonix’s chilling version!

THE FUTURE 

Is there a prosperous future for all of humanity?

Technically there should be.

Progress should continue, bringing opportunities to learn, grow, stay interconnected.

Yet, there have been and are forces trying to prevent the future from being what it should be.

We need to DEMAND the future we DESERVE!

I’ve been working with an amazing company called Neste for the past year as a futurologist on a project called #PreOrderTheFuture.

I teamed up with them because it really aligned with what I’m passionate about; which is helping improve the future through technology, sustainability, and education. This project allowed people to submit their ideas that can help improve the future and NESTE would fund it.

This was an ambitious project but nevertheless, I believe a successful one.

THE RESISTANCE 

The Trump Resistance Will Be Led by Angry, Assertive Women

… an agent of the Rebel Alliance …

PLANET EARTH

“I believe in strong women.

I believe in the woman who is able to stand up for herself. I believe in the woman who doesn’t need to hide behind anyone’s back. I believe that if you have problems, as a woman you deal with them, you don’t play victim, you don’t make yourself look pitiful, you don’t point fingers.

You stand and you deal. You face the world with a head held high and you carry the universe in your heart.”

Thoughts for today, #459 …. “Dark Inauguration …. but leave all TV’s on …. “!!

DARK INAUGURATION BUT LEAVE TV’S ON

ATTENTION!

HELPFUL INFORMATION!
There’s a lot of talk about people NOT watching the inauguration.

The Grabber will be checking his ratings, and many may not know the way that the TV shows are rated.
To keep his rating LOW, you must have your television turned ON, but NOT tuned into any channel showing ANY inauguration coverage.

If you don’t turn your TV on, his ratings will show higher because of the percentage of sets tuned in. So set up all your televisions to the geographic channel or cooking channel! Anything that is not covering the inauguration, basically!

Television must be on, but NOT tuned into channels covering Trump.
Please share this information!
