Pray for the grace to bear witness to the Light of Christ, so that you, by your very life can be the bearer of hope and joy. Live in such a way that everyone who knows you sees that in God is the joy of your soul and this joy is their inheritance, too.

Happy Birthday! I don’t know if you are a girl or a boy, rich or poor, small or big, healthy or unhealthy. I don’t know if you have freedom of speech, or freedom from dirty water and air. But no matter who you are, I do know that happiness includes eating fresh green things, spending time with the people who care about you, and doing what you love. Let your work be a gift for the 8 billionth baby.

I hope to tell SEVEN with this photo and the one I submitted before (titled: The Future Potential) that change is upon us and  the world is too, as we get more conscious about the environment.

About:

Who are we?

We are Beluma Arts, a New Haven-based community group focused on creating, supporting and promoting participatory public art projects. From 2009-2011 we were devoted to the realization of the 7 Billionth Person Project.

It was through this Project that we aimed to start a conversation about the current state of the world. In all it's joy, and all it's pain. By collecting thoughts, images, questions, songs and blessings from around the world -- for the 7 billionth person -- we challenged people to think beyond the personal, to the global.

Started in partnership with the Yale World Fellows Program in the fall of 2009, the project emerged from conversations around the responsibilities we each have to our fellow human beings -- and about a new concept: global civics. What would it mean if each of us started to think of ourselves as "global citizens"? How do we build a sense of community that extends beyond neighborhoods, national boundaries, languages?

We've already collected more than 200 answers of all mediums from more than 30 countries. And we've hosted two large scale events. Our official launch was in July of 2009 in Bogota, Colombia. In the fall of 2010, we put on a large-scale, participatory exhibition in New Haven, Connecticut, USA. In the spring of 2011, we brought the project to Sri Lanka. While we do not have plans for additional exhibitions, we continue to welcome your online submissions: http://www.7billionthpersonproject.org/submit

Cheers!
