From a distance, everything looks beautiful. When we gaze upon
our tiny blue planet from the black void of space, we cannot make out the many conflicts that are raging all over the planet.
While the politics of greed, hatred and power plays out in different parts of the globe, the greatest threat is largely being ignored. A rapidly growing human population coupled with a lifestyle which is based on taking more from earth than giving back is threatening the safety of all our future generations.
The hope lies in creating a new vision for our world. A vision which becomes surprisingly clear when we travel into space and look back at Earth from a distance. Watch this 3 min film and see whether you agree.

War is often a fight for peace
Anger, but a cry for love
Every mother knows
Countries are just concepts
Borders are but egos
Every river knows
Politics is but religion
Religion is but control
Every martyr knows
Victory is but fleeting
Every orphan knows
Conflict is but business
Business but for greed
The planet knows
The world is but divided
Our future uncertain
Till everyone knows
Earth is but home
Healing it is but healing ourselves
