I watched a TED video today of a woman named Donna Morton speaking about renewable energy and just the things we need to do change the world.
Two things stood out to me and really touched my heart, mind, and soul
1) She talked about how we don’t just need average white males the engineers, the smarty pants people for help. They are not going to solve the worlds problems for us. But what the world does need is more women to be involved, artist so they can think out of the box with their creativity, and creative intelligence, we need the bottom of the period the 90% of the world we need the poor, the incarcerated, the people who have really struggled in their lives. We need them to help us shape a better future, and lastly that we need a people powered capital. We need to make the stand for our needs. The majority of America. The majority of the world are not living this rich lives that our brains are censored to think. The majority of America is working class or poor. We need to make standards of the type of environment and government we want to be in in order for our basic world to change.
2) She talked about Wangari Maathi a environmental activist in Kenya who was part of the greenbelt alliance who told a story about a hummingbird bringing water back and forth as best as it can. It didn’t matter how small or tired the hummingbird was but it was doing the best it could. She left us with this beautiful quote:
“Just Remember what you love and bring it and use it to change the world because that is the only thing that has changed the world.”
