No Trees Means No Humans, and No Chimpanzees either

Dr. Jane Goodall is known worldwide as a chronicler and savior of wild chimpanzees in central Africa. She is also the founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and is a United Nations Messenger of Peace.

This October, she’ll be speaking at the Parliament of the World’s Religions in Salt Lake City. For many years, she worked tirelessly, in primitive conditions, to record the lives of chimps and make the danger of their extinction known to the public.Dr. Jane Goodall

The Parliament of the World’s Religions is an interfaith organization dedicated to respect and tolerance of all faiths. This includes respect for all species, a topic that I hold dear to my heart.

Love, yes love, for all species is essential to our survival! No trees means no humans!

When I share my ideas on the concept that “We are One,” with the Parliament attendees, I’ll discuss the fact that we humans are all related, to one another and indeed to all living species.

I hope that my talk and my book, I Can’t Always See My Path…But I Keep On Walking, will resonate with the audience as much as it has with my community of friends like you.

What thoughts or questions do you have about the idea that We are One? Leave them on the Facebook page. I’d love to see your comments on this topic and it would be a great help to me as I prepare my talk.

Dr. Jane Goodall’s keynote will address the damage of war to the natural world and how society can overcome the cyclical relationship between the critical issues of war, violence and climate change.

The Parliament conclave, October 15-19, will feature many great thinkers in addition to Dr. Jane Goodall such as Marianne Williamson, of the Course in Miracles. I’m really looking forward to it!

With gratitude,
Richard
