*Note: This week we are in the Tree House!
So this week a decision came down from the Oval Office taking the United States out of the Paris Agreement. Though not all people have the same views on whether this was a good move or not, I cannot remain silent when the future of our earth is at stake.
Let's start with a big shout our to our first female mayor of GR, Rosalyn Bliss, who on June 2, joined mayors from around the country to reaffirm their commitment to addressing climate change. Bliss declared GR's dedication to getting to 100% renewable energy by 2025. High five, Mayor Bliss!
To that end, I am excited to announce our June community partner, Grand River Water Festival, an organization that stands for Mother Earth & our precious local water resources. This week we welcome Bruce Ling, one of the creators of the Grand River Water Festival. He will be speaking on the importance of local action in water quality, the festival, and how we can become involved.
At EmbodyGR we "do good." That is an integral part of living a rich & beautiful life- to give back, to make the world better for another. And now more than ever we need to take personal & local responsibility. If you drink water, breathe air, eat food from the soil, or walk on our planet held down by force of gravity, this call to action is to YOU!
Please show up this week to feel better for sure AND also commit to doing good! Our world needs you.
Peace on earth,
