Awakening a Keen Observer

And the winner is!

The winner of the Nobel Peace prize is...Wangari Maathai of Kenya. This woman realized that her country had lost 90% of its forests and woman and girls had to spend a large part of their day looking for wood for fuel. So she organized a movement that planted over 30 million trees. Fast growing trees. What an amazing thing to do.

It is not just about the environment, it is not just about women and girls, it is about everyone. She is now environmental minister of Kenya.

So. What are you going to do today? Like Maathai you have the power to change things in the world for the better. It's early, make a plan.

God blesses you
God abide
