Calling all Grandmothers



We have to live differently or we will die in the same old ways.

Therefore I call on all Grand Mothers everywhere on the planet

to rise and take your place in the leadership of the world.

Come out of the kitchen, out of the fields, out of the beauty parlors, out of the telelvision.

Step forward and assume the role for which you were created:

to lead humanity to health, happiness and sanity.

I call on all the Grand Mothers of Earth and every person who possesses the Grandmother Spirit of respect for life

and protection of the young to rise and lead. The life of our species depends on it.

And I call on all men of Earth to gracefully and gratefully stand aside and let them do so.
