As a member of this magnificent crew on the astounding blue planet Earth, I feel compelled to address you all in a matter of great urgency. My heart is pounding and my eyes well up when I learn of the ways of the human condition.
I have great hopes and admiration for the capacities of us, the human beings, and I believe that we still have the option for exercising great love and compassion for each other. The time has come for an intense and ground-shaking change in order to ensure our future on this planet. Mother Earth gives me food, clothing and shelter, no matter my origin, skin color, religious beliefs and spiritual orientation. Our mother loves us without judgments and conditions.
It is time to refocus our energies into what really matters and honor our true potential and responsibilities for the future generations.
We must regroup and set aside our differences on all levels. We must reconsider how we manage our resources. The focus must be that of sharing and realizing our basic needs and how we all must chip in and readjust our comfort levels in order for all living beings to continue their presence on this beautiful planet.
Please muster your courage and be the powerful human being that you are. Be the one who proudly tells the children that you are doing all that you can to preserve the future for them and their children. For the love of our mother and her children: Please stand up for the life that really matters and help each other heal the planet with whatever means that you have to your disposal. Let the future of our mother be full of people who are healthy and happy.
