One World

One-by-one and all together…
The only way we’ll win this battle.
119 world leaders in Copenhagen
Can agree or not;
Ultimately,
It’s up to each of us.
Choices we make every day
Determine the future for our children.
We have the power
To make a difference on this planet…
But belief and action are required.

Belief and action. Those word apply to many facets of life. A great piece, as usual. My 55 won't be up for a few hours.

I always say to people, whether you believe that the planet is in trouble or not, what would it hurt to try to better it either way!

Felicitas said...

Monkey Man - Precisely! I look forward to reading your 55 too.

Otin - That's a great piece of advice!

indeed...it takes the world village to heal whole planet...we are all responsible for each other and all that is...no matter what our "leaders" agree to...it is up to us.

We might even clutch a straw and be satisfied about it. What really counts is what other flipside of situation bring to us.

Felicitas said...

Thank you, everyone, for your wonderful comments! It is up to us - as someone once put so well - to be the change we wish to see in the world.

Felicitas, timely post. Once again, however, politics and self-interest get in the way of a full agreement in Copenhagen. Well, incremental baby steps are better than nothing at all.

Warm regards on a cold day.
