Turn Up the Dark
I’ll admit this is the first year I’ve heard of and will be participating in this annual event. Every year, hundreds of millions of people around the world switch off their lights for one designated hour to demonstrate a commitment to fighting climate change.
This year, Earth Hour takes place at 8:30 p.m. local time on March 25. There’s never been a more critical moment for the world to show solidarity for and a strong commitment to fighting climate change. By going dark, local government, cities, companies, landmarks, and individuals send the message that we will remain steadfast as we deliver on the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement. All life on planet Earth is at risk. Its sucks.
Momentum is on our side. The world is looking toward a renewable future. This Earth Hour, turn up the dark and get loud about climate action. Let the world know you’re all in!
the Educating Gossip ™ is in! Are you?

Own It! How appropriate it is on International Women’s Day to face the world as it is. Making this conscious choice to go up close, and examine our beliefs today and everyday is empowering. It takes courage to critically ask: Where did these beliefs came from? Do these beliefs now need to change in light of new understandings? This journey must be prepared for before it is begun.
Feel It! It can feel scary and unsettling to have our core beliefs challenged. Especially when those beliefs are revealed to be untrue or based on bias and mistakes. Yet, it is the honor of being human to learn, stretch and grow. Making space for our thoughts, feelings and actions to constantly develop is a sign of maturity, and a civic responsibility. Yet, it is emotionally hard to do sometimes.
Live It! These online courses are designed to prepare those who are willing to undertake this classic human hero’s journey that results in seeing life as it is. The courses are one hour each, with transcripts and audio. Completion of the courses can lead to personal and social transformation because it reveals how to live a human life that is rich with purpose, meaning, and a truer understanding of others and ourselves.
Love It! Sign up for the courses and embrace the new beginnings that await.
I just stumbled across a series of books designed to help individuals teach themselves about basic philosophical concepts at work in civil societies.
You don’t often get easily accessible secondary sources that take complex primary sources about philosophy and make it understandable. It’s easy to know why ethics and ethical behavior is required not just for individuals but especially for individuals who are elected to serve and govern a country.
These books are so important, especially now when many people, in many countries, are living with flawed democracies. I’m reading them and learning how to improve the performance of democracy. Check them out from your local library. Or, click on our Resources page.
Live It! Love It!
