Shanghai-Nantong Yangtze River Bridge

Shanghai-Nantong Yangtze River Bridge, the world’s 1st rail-expressway cable-stayed bridge with a main span over 1km, completed closure on Sept 20. The 11072-m-long bridge is expected to bolster the integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta.

Kaivey - trade and prosperity only really brings benefits when there is peace. Another Jeremy in Britain worth knowing ...

The Power of the Individual: - Peace One Day Founder, Jeremy Gilley in Conversation with Peace Ambassador & Author Prem Rawat Sep 20, 2019.

Jeremy Gilley's efforts led to Peace Day – a global ceasefire and commitment to non-violence on 21 September. The 'they" mentality; appreciating this beautiful planet; how we can experience true peace.

I posted it mainly because the photograph was rather beautiful. I hope we can take care of the world.

Yes - it is a beautiful 'photo'. But don't ever search "Yangtze river pollution". The clouds of war are gathering, especially wherever someone tries to build a bridge between the cultures, and all along the new Silk Road too. Greed is rampant. People have forgotten how to appreciate and celebrate the cultural differences that the old Silk Road opened up, and appreciate human existence too. As Prem said in the video - it's not hope that will put the fire out. Reporting on the wars is one thing. Recognising the real problem is another. Offering a solution is entirely another. The essence of any human being is peace, but we have strayed a long way from home. If you do not know that, you have never been in touch with your heart.

"But I know one thing: that there is enough goodness in every single human being on the face of this earth that, if that was brought out, if that was allowed to be nurtured, that there would be one simple thing that would happen — not sympathy, but empathy." [Prem]

A tweet i across the other day.

'I love nature but it doesn't care about me.'

This world is despicably cruel. It seems we've evolved to not notice it.
