May 10 is Mother Ocean Day.
Water is essential to human life. In fact, it is essential to all of the forms of life known to humankind in general, as there are no known species that can survive without it. Though marine biologists are unsure just how many kinds of creatures reside in our planet’s 5 oceans, it is estimated that about one-quarter of all of the Earth’s species do.

As we celebrate Mother’s Day, it is appropriate that we celebrate Mother Ocean Day. Depending upon your view, humankind emerged and evolved from the primordial soup of the oceans. It doesn’t really matter where we come from, what matters is what we do while we are here. As a species we are unique and beautiful, each in its own way. No one race of human is dominant over another. No culture is superior over another. We are all one body and spirit in the creator, whether you believe that origin is mother ocean or God.
Cheers and Happy Mother’s Day to all
