photographic tribute to our shared humanity. A million people diminishing
hatred… one by one.
It is only ignorance that divides us into "us" and
"them". It is fear of those who are different that breeds inhumanity
and war. But
if there is one thing we have learned as a result of September 11th, it is
that we cannot simply wait and hope for fear and hatred to go away. We
must banish hatred if we are to make safe our world. Is it possible to do
that? We believe it is. For beneath our business suits and burkas,
beneath our skins of white and brown, beyond the beliefs and traditions we
honor when we bow our heads in prayer, we are a single people, all
striving for joy and meaning in an unpredictable world. When we can
replace our fear of those who are different with a sense of our shared
humanity, we will safeguard our planet from hatred and war.

"Business strategies built around the radically more
productive use of natural resources
can solve many environmental problems at a profit." - Lovins &
Hawken, Harvard Business Review
Profits, enterprise, opportunity are ideas not usually part of the
environmental debate. They should be, and Rocky Mountain Institute, an independent,
nonprofit research, consulting & education organization, is making sure they are.

Connections, an affiliate of Peak Experiences International, consults and offers

served as a cultural liason between the United States and Mexico for several international
