ECLIPSE LAUNCH PAD!!!  August 11, 1999

Statement by John McConnell, The Founder of Earth Day

THE IDEA THAT CAN DO MOST FOR PEOPLE AND PLANET AND MAKE THE THIRD MILLENNIUM A TIME OF GREAT OPPORTUNITY AND FULFILLMENT.

This amazing Solar Eclipse has the attention of the whole world as we approach January 1, 2000 - 144 days from now.  Does the Eclipse Prelude to a new millennium symbolize the end of civilization - punishment for the continuing hatred and conflict on Earth - or redemption and a new beginning of stewardship, harmony and mutual benefit?

Spread the vision, attitude and actions that can best avoid catastrophe and provide a future. 

Earth Day - the solar event on the March Equinox - provides the way with its idea of everyone doing what they can to think and act as a Trustee of Earth (www.earthsite.org).  This can end conflict, pollution and poverty in the New Millennium.

A growing wave of Earth Trustee commitment between now and January 1 can then lead to global celebration on March 20, 2000 - the first Earth Day in the New Millennium.

Let us join today in prayer and commitment to this great task.

Expect a miracle!
