On This Mother’s Day – A Few Words for ‘Mother Earth’

A Brief One from Niagara Falls, Ontario resident Derek Jones

Posted May 14th, 2017 on Niagara At Large

I would like to take this opportunity to say Happy Mother’s Day to all of the Moms out there -but especially to Mother Earth who, in these troubling times, needs all of  the respect, love and support that she can get.

Since my own wonderful Mother passed away only a few short years ago, Mother’s Day has taken on a deeper, more profound meaning on a personal level.

As we celebrate Mother’s Day, let’s all remember that we have more than one Mother to celebrate, and cherish. For without our Mother Earth, we have nothing. I Love you Mother, with all my heart.

Here – in the photo above – is the moon rising over Thundering Waters Forest last night (Saturday, May 13th, 2017). Peace and Happy Mother’s Day.

Derek Jones is a Niagara Falls, Ontario resident and one of many Niagara area residents fighting to save 500 acres of woodlands, wetlands and savannah meadows in the Niagara River watershed known as the Thundering Waters Forest for sprawling urban development.
