Welcome

Join me! As the Hopi Elders so eloquently stated, “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for…” I believe once our awareness and compassion become heightened we realize we have to take it beyond human to human, we have to take it to the planet and all of its inhabitants. We’re all connected. We need to take care of each other and while we’re lifting up this awareness and compassion for one another as “All God’s Children,” we also lift up “All God’s Creatures,” and then everything falls into place. This is the only way real change will happen. As Gandhi said, “My Life Is My Message.” Let our message stand for peace on Planet Earth and justice for #AllGodsCreatures #WeAreOne.
