Happy Earth Day!

Earth-Day-Dana-Gray
Times are tough with everything that’s going on in the world but I still have a simple belief that we are on this planet for more of a reason then just destroying the planet and each other. I think one of our best hopes for a united Earth effort begins with the astronaut's vision of the Overview Effect. Once the movie “Continuum” comes out the general public will get their first look at an overview, our history and everything they didn’t know about our little blue planet.

“On the outside, in-between all of us and everything else.” Chris Hadfield

I wanted to do something different for Wonderland so I wrote this poem beforehand and now I want to share it with you. It encapsulates my feelings about this day and the Earth. I hope you like it.

Believe


Believe that things can get better
Believe that the earth can be clean
Believe that no person goes hungry
The future remains to be seen.

Believe there's an end to extinction
Believe that the forests stay green
Believe that the garbage gets picked up
The future remains to be seen.

Believe there's a better tomorrow
Believe that the earth is pristine
Believe there's no war in all counties
The future remains to be seen.

The future is ours so let's grab it
Let's clean up this world that we trash
We need to quit wasting resources
The future remains and must last.

Take care and may your view today on Earth Day be an Overview.

I hope you like the geekiness of my Wonderland. This blog has been around for a long time and used to be a MySpace until I moved it over to Blogger. I wrote about a plethora of subjects and still post here today. Wonderland has a special place in my heart it taught me so much about writing, websites, and people. I like comments so don't be shy about what's on your mind but I do moderate them so give me time to answer.
