What is Truly Going on?
Has anyone stopped to think about what is truly going on? Why are we having these major conflicts between superpowers? Back in 1992 a young girl went to the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro to speak to adults about what they were doing to our world. It’s a very powerful and moving message. It got me to thinking what has happened to her and what is she doing today? The young girl’s name is Severn Cullis-Suzuki (born November 30, 1979 in Vancouver, British Columbia) she’s a Canadian environmental activist, speaker, television host and author. When she spoke it wasn’t to point fingers but to ask others to be responsible for their actions. Is this possible?
Taking Concrete and Positive action
Fast forwarding to 2011, Jean-Paul Jaud did a documentary called Severn, the Voice of our Children. I haven’t been able to watch the full movie yet, but was able to screen the preview. Here’s a short synopsis of the film.
At the Rio de Janeiro International Earth Summit in 1992, for the first time in history, a child stood up and questioned those responsible for taking care of our planet.
Our actions do not reflect our words: Planet Earth is still in the same state today, and Severn, now an adult, is expecting her first child. She once again takes the floor, explaining that although the situation is urgent, there is still time to make a change.
In this emotional documentary filled with hope, Severn stands as a reference for those who, from Canada to Japan, passing by France, are taking concrete and positive action to respect biodiversity. But who will answer Severn’s appeal for change?
Appealing for Change!
When Severn appeals for change were does it come from, not where you would think? Normally I wouldn’t take this kind of leap and connect these videos but you must listen to what’s being said to fully understand the gravity of the situation. I’ll go back to my original question what’s really going on? President Putin warning Obama that if something isn’t done about Monsanto’s GMO foods it could lead to another World War (spoken in 2013). What I find interesting is that it’s not just Russia but Switzerland, France, Italy, Slovenia, and the Ukraine along with others that have banned GMO foods. Look at what is really happening in Ukraine and ask what is the real agenda behind what’s going on. Did you know that Ukraine is the bread basket for much of Europe and Russia? It’s a very complex issue that doesn’t need any conspiracy theories. But one must admit that there are some interesting correlations here to think about. In the end we must say, We are what we do, not what we say!
