You've done it before & you can do it now. See the positive possibilities. Redirect the substantial energy of your frustration and turn it into positive, effective, unstoppable determination. #RalphMarston ✊🏼// Over the past week since finding out about the Amazon being set on fire and diving deep into research mode to better educate my self on the subject, so I can spread awareness on the history behind this war between nature + human greed. The more I am a witness of the depths of this crisis, the deeper my heart sinks, a paralyzing feeling as tears stream down my face, I feel so helpless. My body is here, but my mind and soul are in the heart of Mother Earth. If you know me, you know Gaia... Pachamama has been my life’s work. I’ve traveled around the world to write her story, leaving it all behind and with very little funds.
Exploring and studying as many of her corners as I’ve been able to, given everything up just so I could stand by the oyster fisherman in Louisiana when the BP oil spill hit, helped start The Keys Environmental Coalition in FL when fears of the spill slipping into their islands were on their mind, taken care of donkeys rescued from slaughter in Morocco, walked along the side of Elephants in Thailand rescued from lumber yards, stood under waterfalls, dived deep into her sea among whale sharks, 🐳walked entire countries just to understand religion; stood on top of the Saharan dune’s edge blowing kisses to the wind, as she whispered secrets in my ear. 🌬 -
I’ve never had the chance to visit the Amazon, the home of my ancestors. My blood shares their blood, these are my forests, my family. 🧬 I thought I had time, but now the trees and the animals burn & I can hear their screams, I can hear them weep... 😔 I know many of you who have reached out feel the same. We must find the strength to find our voice and speak on behave of Earth. Becoming her true Earth Guardians. 🎙Her voice is OUR voice, we must UNITE, we must RISE up and STAND by her, no matter where in the world you are, we must WAKE UP, we must let her know there are MORE of US that want to PROTECT her, then those who want to hurt her. I #StandwithEarth Do You? ✊🏼💚 Let’s stand together!
