New Millennium Resolution!!!

December 31, 2000, was the end of the most evil and destructive millennium in history. But for centuries many people have tried to do what they believed was right and have kept alive the hope that the new millennium would be a millennium of peace and prosperity.

You can help make that dream come true. Resolve with all your heart that beginning now, you will think and act as a trustee of Planet Earth.

Thousands of group projects are already helping people and planet. Their impact can increase dramatically by uniting in the essentials where they agree -- one common cause, the REJUVENATION of Earth.

Human greed, injustice and folly have almost ruined our planet. But with the aid of new technology a vigorous global effort can repair the damage.

Until now, Earth Caretakers have been a sad minority. The most powerful institutions (global corporations and rich governments) have usually put financial profit first. The resulting social and environmental damage is disastrous. But Earth Trustee vision and action can change that. It provides a way for you to tap the best in your thinking and in your faith.


Press, Radio, TV and Internet play a vital role. Actions, good or bad, begin in the mind. Those able to command media attention have a special obligation to speak out about the crisis and its solution -- the Earth Trustee vision and agenda. (See:

Here is an opportunity for Pope John Paul II, Billy Graham, The Dali Lama, and ALL world leaders to call for prayer and heartfelt dedication to the care of Earth -- to think and act as Trustees of Earth. Leaders in other areas of public trust ideally will do the same.

Mass media has a sacred obligation as the eyes and ears of the public to:

  • Feature solutions -- and their answers to problems
  • Headline cases of peaceful progress in the human adventure that replace hate, fear, greed and lust
  • Give recognition and attention to people and projects that eliminate pollution and poverty and foster peace, justice and the care of Earth.

With the media's cooperation, Earth Day, March 20, 2001 -- on nature's historic annual event, the March Equinox, will provide a great global holiday with world wide participation by people of every creed and culture. This will inspire actions for Earth's rejuvenation in the new millennium -- with peace, justice and prosperity for all.

Your resolution to be an Earth Trustee, shared with your friends, can be a vital part of Earth's Resurrection as we enter the New Millennium.

Forward this message to anyone you know who can help.
