Mother Earth’s Fairy Tale (11.24.15)

By Mommy Moo Moo

Once upon a time, a long time ago, an evil force called Terrorism threatened world leaders and people from all around the planet from coming together to create solutions to protect our great planet called Earth. The brave and courageous people from all walks of life said, “No thanks evil forces! Our planet is worth protecting.”

The people from all walks of life gathered all over the earth and shouted out loudly and clearly, “We must change! Protect our planet! Protect Mother Earth!” The world leaders woke up from their deep slumber, heard those voices and said, “They are right. We can change. We are the change!”

The brave world leaders gathered together in Paris, France amidst great fear and uncertainty and created a bold plan with very strong rules and guidelines saying, “This is how we take care of the planet that takes care of us.”

The people from all walks of life cheered and danced in the streets celebrating the great victory for Mother Earth. And Mother Earth said, “Thank you. We live what we create. We create what we live.”

The evil forces cried and screamed, “Nooo!”as they ran away evaporating and melting into the atmosphere. And the brave people from all walks of life, the courageous world leaders, and magical Mother Earth remind each other every day how brave and courageous that meeting in Paris was and how important it was for the future. And as we gaze around at the beauty and wonder of this magnificent planet called earth, we say, “They were the change.” And they lived happily ever after.

The End.
