"Care For The Planet" part of my 2011 almanac. This doesn't just mean to act in a sustainable fashion. To me it also means Love One Another. It is a call to pay attention to what goes on in the world around you, locally and globally, and to become actively involved.
The song for today is a cry of hope, saying that even though terrible things happen in the world, "...love is the answer, love is the way..."
I know it has been over played, but I apparently don't care. The sentiment of this song remains. So for my nephew and my niece, who love this song, and who will be 16 and 14 in ten years from now... here is K'naan with Wavin' Flag
I hope that over the next ten years we will all grow stronger, individually and as a planet. Let us care for each other.
The month of May in the almanac is "One For The Kids"
