This vibrant, colorful painting of Earth Day shows humankind taking the extraordinary leap that we need to take to make the changes we need. All the personal things so many of us are doing - driving more slowly, turning down the heat, eating locally - are all important and we need to each continue our efforts!

BUT war wrecks total havoc on the environment. Peace is much healthier for the earth - besides for "children and all other living things." The environmental impact of war is terrible!! The fighter jets, bombs, wreckage of buildings, transporting many troops and supplies ... all take a large toll on the earth. I KNOW it is terrible with the human cost - and I am so sorry for all of us who have been impacted with human loss by war (which includes most of us) ... AND the toll of war on the earth is terrible also.

This is yet another reason we need to strive to create peace - for all of us and also the home we call earth!!

Thank you for stopping by!
