World Happiness Day was last week and I have to say I was sad to see it go. It was like MLK's day of service gone global; social media was brimming with hope and vows for a happier more equitable world. Aside from all of the uplifting tweets and playlists, I really enjoyed reading about Pharrell at the UN urging youth to take climate action.
If you look at our behavior is hard to believe we’re all aware we only have one planet.
The artist and Creative Director for Live Earth's tone was pointedly optimistic:
My main inspiration for being here today is that we’re in trouble, but we can change that. This earth is our home.
Yes Pharrell, yes!
