Happy Earth Day 2010!

What do I have to blog today? A prayer ... a selection of quotes ... dedicated to today and all days cuz Earth Day shouldn't just be remembered/celebrated on one day but every day ...

Earth Day Prayer:
we thank you for this earth, our home; for the wide sky and the blessed sun, for the ocean and streams, for the towering hills and the whispering wind, for the trees and green grass.
We thank you for our senses by which we hear the songs of birds, and see the splendor of fields of golden wheat, and taste autumn's fruit, and rejoice in the feel of snow, and smell the breath of spring flowers.
GRANT US a heart opened wide to all this beauty; and save us from being so blind that we pass unseeing when even the common thornbush is aflame with your glory.
~Author Unkown 

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." ~Margaret Mead 

"It is the stillness that will save and transform the world." ~Eckhart Tolle  
"Take me to the places on the earth that teach you how to dance, the places where you can risk letting the world break your heart, and I will take you to the places where the earth beneath my feet and the stars overhead make my heart whole again and again."
~Oriah Mountain Dreamer
