The Earth Needs Us!!!

For some time now…these thoughts have been on mind. Actually ever since watching An Inconvenient Truth by Al Gore.

The more I read the news, read the reports of the top scientists, and speak to our elders like my grandparents…it is obvious…that the Earth is disastrously warming.

Granted. Not much. But even a few degrees can make profound huge differences in the health of our ecosystems. And from what I can figure out, they are not doing so well.

In our lifetimes we might see…the destruction of the world’s coral reefs…the end of Amazon rainforest…the melting of the North Pole…no more major glaciers…whole islands going underwater.

A real tragedy of epic proportions. There was a while when I could just put my head in the sand like an ostrich and focus on my fitness levels and my job and my family and my money. But that time of American prosperity seems to be coming to slowdown and new realities are setting in.

And a new challenge. One that will ask us all to work together to save this planet and our very civilization.

I’d like to make my Earth Day Message a pretty one with pretty flowers and some sweet meditative lets go out to nature and commune with the animals. And trust me, I will be doing this tonight with my trail running group at Trump Golf Course at 5:30.

But I think a bigger message needs to be told here today. A one of AWAKENING TO THE TRUTH. The calling is upon us.

I wish I could say I live a green lifestyle…but I have a long way to go. And making this a daily priority and living the example of a low impact, environmentally healing individual growing a green community around me will be a priority for me and my writings on this blog also in the years ahead.

Please, please, start educating yourself especially on the issues of climate change. There is more to life than the podium, or a medal, or the gym.

Together we can make a difference.

God Bless,
