Are You Part of The Solution or Part of the Polution?
Brothers and Sisters,
Once you’re awake, you can no longer ignore what’s been going on all around you. I don’t just mean your family, your block, your neighborhood, your community, your country, but all over the world.
You can no longer stand by and do nothing, and your life begins to change as you become more passionate about certain causes and begin to get involved in the solutions. You can act with your money, your time, your hands or your heart. Below are a list of articles and links I’ve come across to help you become more aware of issues that will open your eyes to what’s going on and how you can get involved.
This is just a partial list of places to begin applying Your Positive Love Energy. Whether it be through a letter, donation or a commitment of time, your participation will greatly accelerate the work that we all need to be focused on in the coming year. Please take part in educating as many fellow brothers and sisters to the groups listed below or any progressive green alternative energy groups that you are passionate about.You can also “activate and interact with any number of the great sites in our “links” sections. “Get up, Stand Up !”
