The Actions That Can Do The Most For You And Your Planet

The first view of Earth from Space inspired the idea of Earth Day.  "We set out to explore Space and discovered Earth."  From this came the idea we should all think and act as Trustees of Earth.

In a prelude to a better future, on March 20, 1998, outriders of Planet Earth celebrated Earth Day in Space.  At the Mir Space Station there was a brief ceremony that included the special moment when the Peace Bell at the United Nations was rung as Spring began (2:55 p.m. in New York). Astronauts, Cosmonauts and people on Earth joined at that time in a brief dedication to be responsible trustees of Earth. 

The Earth Trustee idea is appealing to people of every creed and culture.  It is very simple and powerful.  All that is needed is for every individual and institution to think and act as a trustee of Earth, seeking in their own way

"Make choices in ecology, economics and ethics that will eliminate pollution, poverty and violence, awaken the wonder of life and nurture people and planet."

We can now halt the awful record of history with its injustice, wars and violence.  Napoleon once said, "Imagination rules the world."  Internet opens new opportunities to capture the imagination of the world with a solution that can appeal to all.  Projects and efforts that are achieving Earth Trustee goals can be posted as Earth Trustee actions on message boards and
forums. Here is a chance for people of religious faith to prove their faith by their works.

Let every person who receives this message be motivated to deepen their commitment and take action – personally and with any group you belong to.  Forward this to a few friends and suggest they do the same.   Let's circle the world now with a positive Earth Trustee vision that can rejuvenate our planet. 

EARTH DAY – On the March Equinox.

Aiding our endeavor will be a yearly EARTH DAY (a human family reunion) on Nature’s day – March 20-21, 1999.  Bells will ring all over the world when the United Nations’ Peace Bell is rung at the moment Spring begins in the Year 2000.  That Earth Day will signal the end of a tragic millennium of degradation and presage a new Earth Trustee Millennium.
