A Year of Gifting Week 10

THE DENVER RESCUE MISSION

In college I had complete three internships to fulfill my degree and they all centered on poverty in our nation and homelessness locally where I grew up in Southern California.  My first internship was called, Hands Across America, dedicated to educating America about the plight of the homeless and ending with a ceremony where Americans would join hands across the country at a certain date and time simultaneously.  I learned a lot about how easily with circumstances that just about anyone can experience poverty, much of the time it was poverty of the spirit that manifested in homelessness.  I was inspired by how many people came together to focus a spotlight on this human dilemma, not only in America but across the world.

This week I had the privilege to meet with John and Anna McConnell, you may know him as the founder of Earth Day and a leader in wanting to bring caring and awareness to keeping our environment clean and appreciating our sacred planet, I know him as a peace activist and a person who truly cares about the welfare of all people.   I met him through Imagine Peace Foundation about five years ago when he came to speak at one of our Imagine Peace Talks; he was 91 years young and made quite the impression on me with his sweet spirit and insightful wisdom.  When I asked him to name a non profit we could sponsor in honor of the two of them they thought of The Denver Rescue Mission, a charity that is also close to my heart.  So it is in honor of them that I hope you join me in giving a minimum of $3-$10.00 to give hope to our homeless community here in Denver.

If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other-Mother Teresa

LET US PLEDGE OUR LIVES AND FORTUNES TO AID THE GREAT TASK OF EARTH'S REJUVENATION, AND WITH CONFIDENCE AND FAITH, EACH DO OUR PART AS A TRUSTEE OF EARTH TO TAKE CHARGE AND TAKE CARE OF OUR PLANET.

The world of tomorrow is not foreordained to be either good or bad...rather it will be what we make it.

We owe to untold generations in our past and future a firm decision for peace and care of Earth-
