Happy Earth Day!

Be kind to the Planet and it’s creatures, today and everyday. Here is something that I wrote awhile ago but never shared. Feel free to pass it on to others:

Power of Nature

Power of Nature

A Prayer for the Planet

May those living in fear, sadness, and pain be relieved of their continuous agony.
May the voiceless children and animals of this planet be heard and helped.
May the environment be aided, cleansed and respected.
May violent abusers, bullies, hate mongers, and racists be enlightened of their wrongful nature.
May we salvage sanity, compassion, and love.
May clean air, water and food be free of pollution.
May mankind invest in cleaner energy solutions.
May government do its duty in serving its people.
May we endeavor to cure the ills.
May kindness be more valuable than money.
May war be stricken from the planet.
May we accept others unlike ourselves.
May we have the strength, determination and character to make just one of these changes.
