More Global Unity

atlas with earthYesterday I brought your attention to a remarkable seed-event in the struggle for Global Unity. Today I’m providing more information about it, hopefully to encourage you to let it influence your thinking and feeling in a way that inspires you to take action !

The usual news clips and the usual spiritual quote are not here today. I feel bringing this event to your awareness is the news and your response to it is the spirituality.

Take a little time and re-live the initial dream for this amazing event, the whole event, or some highlights:

Here’s some feedback, immediately after the event, from the Pangea Day website:

“The first-ever Pangea Day was a monumental success…People from everywhere tuned in to watch the live broadcast in Cairo, Kigali, London, Los Angeles, Mumbai, and Rio de Janeiro and grassroots events flourished in cities, communities, and private homes.

“The response has been tremendous. Here’s a sampling of the voices we’ve heard from so far”:

“This has been my dream to have such day for years, and today I see it come to reality!”

Farsheed, an Iranian-Canadian ‘global citizen’

“I just stumbled onto the last half hour of the Pangea Day show here in Toronto and am so happy I did…I’m 48 yrs old and got the most wonderful feeling of finally belonging to a community that speaks to and for me…I’m going to check out the web site and find a drum to bang and some people to hug and love!

Ursula of Toronto, formerly of Kircubbin, Northern Ireland

“It’s 4:00 am here and I couldn’t go to bed without writing to you and telling you how beautiful, thought-provoking and deeply moving the experience was.”

Rhea from Chandigarh, India

“Next year – and there MUST be a next year and many years thereafter – please have sponsors everywhere on our planet promoting and advertising this great event and making sure the world watches…”

Barbara, South Africa

“I did not intend to spend hours in front of the TV today but I could not turn it off. You have re-introduced hope in my life, and probably to millions of others today. You gave a gift to the world!”

Lisa, Victoria, BC

“Watching the different stories of people, I see that there is hope and will to come together, to unite. I hope to see Pangea Day every year.”

Nabeel in Karachi, Pakistan.

“We are Islamic people. We’re from Bangladesh. The Pangea Day event was great. We have to say, that was one of the greatest 4 hours of our lives!”

The Khan Family in Quebec, Canada

“I was touched, moved, and inspired. Coming from a third world country, which has a terrible reputation worldwide, where there is an extreme political unrest, suicide bombings all over the town…the events…made me feel a lot better. That maybe there is some hope.”

Fizza in Pakistan

“We started watching the event with the intention to go for dinner at some point… But… we couldn’t leave!”
