Hundreds of stars in the pretty sky,
Hundreds of shells on the shore together,
Hundreds of birds that go singing by,

Hundreds of bees in the purple clover,

But only one mother the wide world over.

us reduce them.
MOTHER'S DAY QUEST:
this Mother's Day it is imperative that we honor both our human mother
and our more than human Mother Nature, for as Stephen Jay Gould
cannot win this battle to save species and environments without forging
an emotional bond between ourselves and (mother) nature as well - for
we will not fight to save what we do not love.
described below, on this Mother's Day we must take into account the cumulative
results of our disconnected insensitivity to Mother Nature
and act accordingly on behalf of all mothers and children, no matter
Mother's Day, May 9, 2004:
Studies by UN scientists show levels of carbon dioxide in the
atmosphere have jumped abruptly, raising fears that global
warming may be accelerating out of control. Global warming may be the
biggest long-term threat to life on Earth. Rising temperatures can
drive thousands of species to extinction, trigger more frequent floods
or droughts, and sink low-lying islands by raising sea levels.
A point source that causes global warming is the desensitization
of contemporary thinking to Mother Nature and her welfare.
Global warming is not normal to the natural systems that flow through
people and Earth.

-from The Web of Life Imperative
MOTHERS DAY HISTORY LESSON:
1986 Dr. Michael J. Cohen, author of The
Web of Life Imperative, asked, in his keynote address to
members of the North American Association of Environmental Education,
you proudly stand up in front of your family, friends and associates
and say without fear or shame that you unequivocally love Mother Nature
or Mother Earth? Any discomforts you or I might feel in doing this are
inner signals to us from injured parts of our psyche that destructively
limit our freedom of choice. These bewildered, often
hurt and hidden authorities in our mentality restrict our freedom to
sustain personal, social and environmental wellness. To our benefit,
nature-connecting activites help us reduce these psychological injuries
with our human mother, Mother Nature has nurturing and healing powers.
Our psyche is deprived of these powers due to our excessive separation
from nature. This disconnection contributes to many of our troubles and
our inabililty to resolve them. A great challenge to our ability to
make sense is that our separation from Mother Nature leads us to
distrust helpful nature-connecting methods and materials.
