Marta Benavides: My Reflections on Peace and the Passing of Wangari Maathai, A Dear Friend
SERR - Siglo XXIII/23rd Century
Many around the world are remembering Wangari Maathai who left her earthly body, yet her spirit, her work, her wisdom and call are with us, for us to live by and to respond. She rests and is in accompaniment to us, let us not loose our direction as we continue to honor, celebrate, and uphold her commitment to uphold the rights of mother earth and humanity. Read additional reflections by others here.
In memory of Wangari Maathai let us continue her vision and commitment for the rights of Mother Earth and all of humanity by following the upcoming COP 17 in Durban, South Africa towards the end of this year and the Rio + 20 gathering in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in June 2012.
