THIS is just what it takes to show how much you care for what Mother Earth has given us.

Many times we take for granted what an hour in our life brings. Time flies and what is just one hour? It is a lot I will tell every Juan.

Every Juan thinks big. Meaning we always look at the big picture and set aside the finer things. We will most surely wake up and ask ourselves, "What shall we do for the day?"


Pause for awhile and ask ourselves what we can do in an hour.

I know. I will run my regular course and swim a kilometer in an hour. I can prepare a pasta dish and serve it in an hour to friends and family.

A change in scenery and relieve stress with a drive to La Union takes an hour. From my home walking to the Mansion to bring my kids horseback riding or having to walk for coffee and salad in the club with Joy takes the same time. Charging a cellphone can take an hour, too.

Listening to music in an hour is soothing and relaxing. Sitting and sharing stories with the one you love in an hour will be most lasting, I will tell you.

Today every Juan will have to take part in one of these that I mentioned in one hour. Please do. Think about it very well, not only will it be your way of taking part in this worldwide event it will also surely make you feel good about yourself and surely the Juans you love.

It will also showcase a side in all of us that we can, even for just an hour, avoid electricity. Use our power to set aside power for an hour.
May the power be with you for an hour. Every Juan has the power to show that we care for Mother Earth.

By loving Mother Earth we can say we love Life. That is all it takes, the power to Love Earth and Love Life.

Oh, believe me or not I did this story in an Hour.
