“What we most need to do is to hear within us the sounds of the Earth crying.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

“I grieve for the loss of forests, fresh water, thousands of unique species, for displaced animals and humans, for dry parched lands, and polluted toxin filled lakes, rivers, marshes and oceans. I grieve for Gaia herself, and for all living things, big or small, that make up this beautiful Earth. Together, We Must Protect our Mother!” – Participant

“Thank you so much, again, for putting this together. It really gives me the outlet I’ve needed — an opportunity to mourn the loss of trees without getting angry and looking frantically for solutions. Just a recognition of how we feel. Marvelous!” – Participant

“We need to grieve the loss of natural areas. Our human footprint should not be about killing off all other life on this planet.” – Participant

“So sad. But what a great way to bring people together!”  – Participant

“This approach to logging tree cutting (pardon the pun) is a really great idea!” – Participant

“I think this is an awesome project ! I grew up in Surrey and definitely do grieve. Its nice to be able to express it.” – Participant

“Stating your grief gives others room for their grief and loosing trees is WORTH grieving!!! Seeing your script on the fallen trees somehow made their “aliveness” more real. Sad but true, how nature gets put “out there” and not experienced as alive and a force we are connected to.” – Participant

“Eighteen neighbours and at least four dogs showed up in the pouring rain for the grief shoot. We all grieved for the tress and the wildlife that used them.” – Participant

“Progress? I think not!” – Participant

“When I heard about the I Grieve project (via Twitter I think), I was instantly on board. Putting markers out and getting pictures posted online made me feel like I wasn’t alone. It also helped me grieve for the trees, something I hadn’t realized I needed to do. Now when I see beautiful trees or the stumps of trees, it’s very consoling to know that I can post good-bye pictures, and mourn with other people who feel the same. It’s surprisingly helpful, really, and has been a real help to me emotionally.” – Participant

“Each day we lose valuable parts of our biosphere as species become extinct and ecosystems destroyed – yet where is their funeral service? If our world is dying piece by piece without our publically and collectively expressing our grief, we might easily assume that these losses aren’t important. Honouring our pain for the world is a way of valuing our awareness, first, that we have noticed, and second, that we care. Intellectual awareness by itself is not enough. We need to digest the bad news. That is what rouses us to respond.”  – Joanna Macy
