A Moment of Remembrance for Wangari Maathai


The environmental movement is mourning the loss of Wangari Maathai today. She has passed away from ovarian cancer. She leaves behind an amazing legacy. The Green Belt Movement she helped found has assisted women in planting more than 40 million trees. Her knowledge, love and courage will be missed by all that knew her and all that know of her. Please take a moment today to learn about the work of Maathai and if you are able consider making a donation to the Green Belt Movement in her honor.

Wangari Maathai is such an inspiration. I first heard about her from the film Dirt (review here). Her story of the hummingbird is so wise.
