I dont know whether i should laugh about this or praise the initiative around the national candle light Mauritius program brought to us by Association Civique Midlands which has been circulating a lot through emails lately.
The slogan says :
Turn out your lights for just two hours
Do something special...
Read a book with your child by candle light
Enjoy a quite dinner with a special person.
This night can mean many things for many people.
A time to save energy, to think about peace,
To think about people in distant lands who share your planet.
Pulling the plugs opens the window to anew world
Awakens us to human freedom and diversity,
It's a process of discovery about our potential
However you spend them, for just tow hours, join us.
Turning off the lights, and help us spread a gentle wave of candle light around Mauritius
I dont know if turning out your buld lights will increase your potential but it will surely sore up the sales of candles.
I think the main idea is to take it slow and spend more time communicating with others ... at least i hope thats the idea.
Anyways its good to know that the Mauritian youth are active and using the web as means of communicating their ideas , thats definitively worth a big clap ....CLAP CLAP CLAP!!
The event is to take place the 2nd of June 2006 from 8-10pm . All those of you willing to show your solidarity are kindly welcomed to turn off your lights and go to sleep ;) .
