“Nothing is more important than our children! They are the future. They can heal the world. It is our obligation to be there for them. To advise them. To motivate them. To help them and to love them. Let us encourage them to go for their dreams. And let us as parents, friends and relatives help them to have good dreams.”
“What we need to learn from children isn’t childish. Being with them connects us to the deeper wisdom of life which is ever present and only asks to be lived. They know the solutions that lie waiting to be recognized within our own hearts.”
~WHAT ABOUT FOREST TRAILS
BURNT DESPITE OUR PLEAS~
We find ourselves once again poised in a position when the vision Michael Jackson saw for the world can happen. Clearly outlined in the goals put forth by the HEAL THE WORLD FOUNDATION: 1. To make the safety, health and development of children the world’s highest priority. 2. To be the voice of the voiceless by focusing worldwide attention on the needs and rights of all children with a forum to express their unique vision for healing the world. 3. To help create a world where children will live without violence, where children will be free of disease and have healthy lives, and where each generation will have the opportunity to grow into fully participating members of the world community.
Michael Jackson believed deeply in the power of the people. “It starts with us. It’s us. Or it will never be done.” The threads of global connectedness and unconditional love empower…a phenomena encompassing all races, cultures and ages. To that end, Michael created WORLD CHILDREN’S CONGRESSES meant to empower the children of the world…giving them a voice, hearing their innocent wisdom and following their vision for world healing.
“I respect the secrets and magic of nature. That’s why it makes me so angry when I see these things that are happening in our world…I really, truly worry. Every second, I hear, the size of a football field is torn down in the Amazon. I mean, that kind of stuff really bothers me. That’s why I write these kinds of songs, you know, to give some sense of awareness and awakening and hope to people. I love the planet, I love trees. I have this thing for trees…and the colors and the changing of leaves. I LOVE IT! And I respect those kinds of things. I really feel that nature is trying so hard to compensate for man’s mismanagement of the planet. The planet is sick, like a fever. If we don’t fix it now, it’s at a point of no return. This is our last chance to fix this problem that we have. It’s like a runaway train. And the time has come. THIS IS IT. People are always saying, ‘Oh, THEY’LL take care of it, the government will do it.’ THEY? THEY who? It starts with us. It’s US. Or it will never be done.”
~CHILDREN ARE OUR FUTURE. WITHOUT THEM, MANKIND WOULD BECOME EXTINCT~
Planet Earth, gentle and blue
With all my heart, I love you.
