Jumping for Joy
Our Time To Celebrate A Great New Age and doom, unless you December 2, 2012 It is not gloom realize that doom is where we have been living for the past thousand years or so. Imprisoned by dis~stress and spiritual bondage that we, as a relatively young species, have brought upon ourselves by backward thinking and primitive thought patterns. We now have the opportunity to awaken into this powerful and transformative time as improved human beings with a greater purpose, and heightened intelligence. A time of peace and prosperity is at hand, as we transition into this new age of enlightenment, so long awaited. Behold, our earth has once again come of age. A time of great change and challenges may lie ahead, but we must look forward to these challenges as an un-leasing of the spirit. We, as humans have the ability and the knowledge to display love and compassion for each other and our planet as a whole, instead of alienating ourselves and beliving we are alone in the universe. Our current actions left un-anchored would soon lead to our ultimate demise. It is wake up time, as we journey into the fifth dimension, a dimension of our collective consciousness, uniting and igniting us all in our true and unlimited potential.

“I Pledge Allegiance To the Earth Of Our Beloved Solar System And to All of Her Creatures For Here They Dwell One Planet United in Harmony With Universal Love And Compassion for All”
Living Sky Foundation “Earth Allegiance” Now a Poster In celebration of Earth Day, as well as the 75th anniversary of the Shenandoah National Park, students from Hearthstone, Belle Meade and Rappahannock County Public Schools in Sperryville, Virginia united for a two-day collaboration to illustrate a new world pledge of allegiance. “Earth Allegiance” written by Cherl Crews, Founder of the Living Sky Foundation, evolved when the pledge of Allegiance had banned from morning announcements in public schools for containing the word God. Living Sky was inspired to create a pledge that would not offend any one system of beliefs, and that would unite all people of the planet in a common vision of love, honor, celebration and respect for all life on earth. The mural went “straight to the top” of the mountain that is, where it was graciously received by over a thousand invited guests at it’s unveiling at the Shenandoah's National Parks, 75th Anniversary and Rededication Ceremony on June 25th, 2011. Superintendent Martha Bogle in her re- dedication speech recited “And now my friends, in this year, 2011, we seek to pass on to our children a
richer land and a stronger nation. Let us join together for the future as we have so well in the past. Let us renew the promise of preservation, and in it, the rich and boundless promise of Shenandoah. Let us all take pleasure in rededicating Shenandoah National Park for succeeding generations of Americans. For the recreation and for the re-creation which they shall find here.” The Living Sky Foundation has donated this beautiful mural to the Shenandoah National Park at Skyline Drive, Virginia in anticipation of permanent placement in the park for all to enjoy. A portion of the proceeds generated from the sale of this poster will go to support the National Park Service as well as to further support the Living Sky Foundation Community Outreach Programs.
