Remember the patriotic song "This is Your Country" ...land of the free. As a kid, when I heard this song I would get all puffed up with pride and the feeling of belonging, proud to be an American. This Christmas, I am not feeling so proud to be an American. Instead, I would like to change the words of the song to "This is your Planet". I am very proud of all of you that have expressed an interest and commitment to be Persons of the Planet. I am happy that since our start in the Spring of this year 2017, we have had 2 movie nights, 2 great speakers, a green holiday bazaar and an article in the Kensington Outlook. And, the outlook looks good for 2018, with more movies nights and an interesting range of speakers lined up.
