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.

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
