Water is the source of all life. It has been worshiped for millenniums by cultures across the globe as sacred. Today there is an urgent need for people to tune into the gravity of what is now happening to our oceans, streams, lakes and aquifers, world wide.
In the 2011 UN Climate Summit the pervasive thought by those who were not in denial about the dangers of global warming, is that we had five years, until 2017, to turn around human habits concerning all aspects of water consumption, waste and preservation.
Now, in 2017, with the corporate agenda of the white house, we must work harder then ever to follow the example of the Standing Rock Oglala Sioux and Northern Cheyenne tribes, the Water Protectors, and stand up for water and the future of humanity.
When water disappears, life disappears. Create a discussion in your community, start a blog, collaborate with concerned neighbors on solutions and then take action. We have no time to waste.
What you can do to help turn the tides of the Earth's precious waters:
Offer a daily invocation of love and respect to the waters near you or offer your blessing long distance
