Three Green Light Salutes to Oslo’s Mayor Stang!

As reported in a news account following the recent tragedy in Norway, Oslo Mayor Fabian Stang, when asked whether greater security measures were needed, sternly rejected the notion:  “I don’t think security can solve problems. We need to teach greater respect.” Teaching greater respect moves us in a Green direction. It’s a crucial time to switch our focus from the Red Light “Who’s wrong? Who’s right?” to “What’s Green?” Let’s each take a Green action today that conveys respect – from one human to another.

Waiting for Superman – How can you shine your Green Light on our education system?

Life in the School of Hard Knocks – in the U.S.A. The future of our nation? Closely connected to the success of our education system. The award-winning documentary, “Waiting for Superman,” sounds a clear and powerful wake-up call for America. (See the DVD for updates.) One alarming fact in many: for graduation rates, among 28 industrialized nations, the U.S. ranks #20.

This wide-ranging, developing disaster is a three-Red-Light/worst case condition. Unbelievable dropout rates – at astonishingly young ages. Illiteracy.  Doors of opportunity locked before children even have a chance to knock. Let us wake up, stand up and aim our Greenest intentions to addressing this unacceptable, un-American situation.

What can YOU do, with your creativity, your Green Light heart – and your Green Light ACTIONS? Let us work to remedy and to reverse this failure to serve our most vulnerable – and our very future.

Sustain the land of the free and the home of the brave by helping to assure we educate our next generation. NOW. Thank you – on behalf of those children, their families, our future – and the American dream.

1-1-11 HAPPY NEW YEAR! YaHOO! Hooray! Zippity doo da day – TODAY! This is a new beginning. A fresh start. A new opportunity to Green up our lives. A chance to review our legacy and see what we want to add to it. Do something today that celebrates YOU. Every aspect of our lives contributed to who we are today. Whatever that is, we can create anew from this space. So have at it! What shall we do to make this a Greener year than last?

On New Year’s Day, a newspaper featured four stunningly beautiful color photos of ice-frosted scenes of nature’s artistry – all brightened by a brilliant coat of sunshine. The descriptions focused on the beauty. A statement followed, that temperatures were expected to inch up over the next few days, with four days of sunshine before rain might come again.

Everything on the first day of the New Year was beautiful and positive – very Green – until the last four words. Imagine the difference in how people might have felt if they were omitted. The readers would likely have been left with a more upbeat feeling. Since weather is such a common element in conversation, those would likely be more upbeat as well. Instead, rain – by some considered a downer – was the final note. And, of course, rain could return at any time. So can sunshine. Whatever is going on, we get to choose to see it, to experience it in a Red Light way or a Green Light way. Let us GO for our Greenest year in 2011.

GO! Create more Green Light signals.  Marilyn Schoeman
