introduction to the GENI Video, "What If . . . A New
I'm John Denver.
From the time I was a small child, I've been in love with
nature the mountains, the ocean, the deserts,
the forests. Nature has always been the greatest source
of comfort and inspiration in my life. And certainly
my music is filled with metaphors from nature.
As I've had the opportunity to travel around the world, I've
grown to appreciate all of mother nature, all of the
earth and it's people. It pains me to see the damage
we do to one another and to the planet. I am personally
committed to doing whatever I can to make it better
for all of us.
It is the purpose of the Windstar Foundation to be a catalyst
for responsible action on a global scale toward a
sustainable future. I believe that it's going to take
all of us working together to solve the problems that
confront us. Whether it's ending hunger, promoting
world peace, or creating a healthy environment. I
believe that each one of us makes a difference.
From the first time I heard his name, Buckminster Fuller
was a hero to me. It was one of the greatest thrills
of my life to have met Bucky and beyond that to spend
time with him and to develop a really close relationship.
Bucky was an incredible inspiration to me as he has
been to people all over the world.
Bucky personifies for me the difference that an individual
can make and the possibility of what one man can do.
That in fact was the name of the song that I wrote
for Bucky on his 85th birthday and in that song I
talked about Bucky being the Grandfather of the Future.
You see Bucky always presented us with the big picture.
The video that you are about to see explores the potential
benefits of a global option that Bucky proposed 20
years ago. This proposal supports a global plan for
ending hunger, third world development, environmental
benefits, stemming the population explosion and a
universal increase in our standard of living.
The proposal presented in this video offers a unique solution
to many of our current global problems. Over the past
3 years a network of people around the world have
been educating us to it's benefits and encouraging
us to take a stand for its creation. Due to their
efforts, the project has created a focus for global
I invite you to watch and listen carefully, because it's important.
And then to take action. The video will show you how.
