I understand it was started five years ago by a group of Ohio State University women inspired by the book The Great Silent Grandmother's Gathering.

I wish the children of today and those yet to be born can enjoy the diversity of nature and the adequate sustenance that was my birthright.

If - one by one - we can learn to love each other, honor and celebrate our differences, and live each day with wonder and a heart full of gratitude, we can we begin to create sustainable peace on Earth. Let it begin with ME!
20 St. Petersburg FLORIDA United States Link to site

The good emerging: We stand in Silence. The silenced ones who cannot talk for themselves are: the women, the children, the mothers, the fathers, the sisters, the brothers, the aunts and nieces..., all the humans deprived of their capacity to say: "enough of this already -- enough!" Our silence provides an opportunity for the birds, the crickets, the squirrels, the lizards to express themselves, letting us hear their sounds and music of peace. Our silence lets them all show us all the peripheral beauty we are destroying everyday. Our silence lets the land resonate by herself -- making us more aware that all the noise we make as humans is covering up our deeds of destruction pursued by greed while creating great distraction. A distraction that victimises everyone. A distraction that allows us to omit the forgotten ones. We maintain silence as a loud sound addressed to all the misguided leaders of this planet.
