Come March With Me For Climate Change!

Come March With Me For Climate Change!

I don’t know that I’ve ever been so passionate about anything in my life as I am about the sad state that our beloved Mother Earth is in. My heart aches for her – the plants and animals, oceans, lakes, rivers, and the land that we humans walk upon.

Hugging Trees in the Age of Climate Disruption

In 1730, Amrita Devi watched men with axes enter her village with an order from the Maharajah — to cut down trees needed to build his new palace. The trees were the villagers’ source of life, the only green in an otherwise barren landscape. The forest shielded the people from the desert, protected their fragile water supply and provided fodder for the cows and twigs for the fire. What’s more, the trees and animals were sacred and not to be harmed, according to the rules of their Hindu sect.
