Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1001 to 1500
From Annex
Preceding Idea 1001
April 6, 1997

Steve Diamond, author of What the Trees Said and co-author, with Robert Alan Silverstein, of the online picture book, One Day in Peace, January 1, 2000. He is a coordinator of the campaign for 24 hours of peace on January 1, 2000.

The 1000 Day Launch

On April 4-6, 1997 the Global Citizenship 2000 Youth Congress launched a 1000 day countdown of creative work on projects designed to care for the Earth and all its life. It was a spectacular start, held in the magnificent concourse of the Vancouver Public Library, on the most important agenda the world has ever known. The youth delegates embraced their task with enthusiasm and commitment.

On that occasion the following Earth Day Proclamation was circulated to the students and all participants and invited guests for signature. It is hoped that innumerable people around the world will sign it.

The Earth Proclamation
We are One people
We are One planet
We have One common dream
We want to live in peace
We choose to protect and heal the Earth
We decide to create a better world for all
We will do our best to make that dream come true
We will change what needs to be changed
We learn to love, share and forgive

We are One people, we want to live and we will.

Personal Commitment

I, the Undersigned,

aware that human activities are seriously endangering the fragile ecosystems of our planet, aware of the widening gap between the haves and the have-nots, aware of the need to redirect my energies to protect and restore the global Web of Life,

decide to begin right now to rethink my ways and values, and change what needs to be changed in myself and around me.

I want the year 2000 – for a new beginning – to be the turning point in the local and global efforts now underway to create a better world based on equality, justice and a sustainable planet; a sustainable world in which Peace on Earth prevails.

Understanding that we are all individually responsible for the kind of future we will create for our children and for countless generations to come, I will participate in initiatives, locally and globally, to transform our world and protect this Jewel of Life we call Earth.

I agree with this Earth Proclamation and personally commit myself to do all that I can to spread it throughout the world and help make our shared dream of Peace, Love and Harmony on Earth come true.

Signed on the 6th of April, 1997

3 Lessons From A Collapsed Lung

Adversity is like a strong wind. It tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn, so that we see ourselves as we really are. - Arthur Golden -

3 Lessons From A Collapsed Lung

"At the start of my junior year at USC, my left lung spontaneously collapsed unexpectedly. After being admitted to the ER, I spent four days at the Good Samaritan Hospital with a uncomfortable chest tube jutting out of my body. This was my first, real, and personal encounter of the true fragility of life: the fact that I could possess perfect health one day then instantly have to cling on for dear life the next - without any warning whatsoever. I recovered quickly, and I did my best to learn the lessons from this challenging but extremely revealing experience. Lessons like: being grateful for good health, keeping a powerfully positive attitude, and living life fully each day. So, just five weeks later, with no tubes to hold me back, I made a huge turnaround by seizing my dream of walking-on to the USC football team." Social entrepreneur Bronson Chang shares an inspiring personal story. { read more }
