I'm not sure why they do that.

This is what Commander Eileen Collins, the first woman to lead a United States Shuttle mission, said when she looked back to the earth in 2005 and saw some of the deep wounds of the earth, in the man made environmental devastation of central Africa. But it is not only Africa that is affected. The problem is global.
Wangari Maathai tells the story in this spiritually inspiring book, written to share with the world the values of her Green Belt Movement, and the launch in Nairobi of the Wangari Maathai Institute for Peace and Environmental Studies.
The Green Belt Movement has four core values; Love for the environment, Gratitude and respect for the earth's resources, Self empowerment and self betterment (or the power to change within us), and The Spirit of service and volunteerism (or the ability to behave selflessly for the common good).
In the first part of the book, and by way of introduction, she tells the story of the beginnings of the Green Belt Movement in 1997, based on simple tree planting in Kenya, and how it has grown from that modest start. In the second chapter she describes many of the horrendous wounds we inflict on our earth, starting with a visit she was invited to make into the forest of the Congo Basin, described as the world's second lung after the Amazon.
We need, she says, a new level of consciousness, so that we can see that the planet is hurting, and internalise our spiritual values to heal those wounds.
We crave over- consumption and the poor and needy crave equality. In the process we become less and less happy, with our materialistic values, and the indigenous tribes are harmed by Western values and diets.

Wonderful, wonderful book!! This woman was a seer and a director for us all to follow her path to a healthy planet. It is written so well and each chapter leads you somewhere new, sad in parts yet offering solutions and a direction to go in.

Wangari was an amazing woman and many people know nothing of her. This book was a great introduction to who she was, what her cause was all about and how she peacefully fought. Everyone interested in environmentalism should read about her.
