22nd February: The Power is with the People

Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
Ecclesiastes 4:12

Perhaps you feel that your little actions will make no difference, and so it is important to realise that you are part of a movement of movements around the world.
There are three movements coming together, the environmental movement, the social justice movement and the campaign for rights of indigenous people
Ordinary and not so ordinary people are willing to confront despair, power and incalculable odds in an attempt to restore grace and beauty to this Earth
In his book “Blessed Unrest” Paul Hawken describes this movement that you are part of as the Largest Social Movement in History

He began to set up a database of organisations which are part of this ‘movement of movements” , collecting lists, databases. He found the tip of a huge formation and found that there are at least ONE MILLION organisations involved in this movement.

You are part of a huge, growing, powerful movement. Each small action you take is multiplied many thousands of times , we are part of change.

Margaret Mead famously said “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

Multiply that by a million and we have power!
