Last Saturday we globally celebrated Earth Day and shared our Letter to Humanity with the world. Available in over twenty-five languages, we called on our readers to share, copy, translate and further distribute the letter. However, "amongst all languages, one version was sadly missing" wrote us Gijs Ockeloen, who provided a translation in Morse Code. "Please make this important message accessible to the shrinking but not yet extinct morse-community!" he asked. Ockeloen worked as a telegraphist for the Royal Netherlands Army in 1979, where he learned to communicate with Morse Code. We thank Gijs for his contribution and gladly share his Letter to Humanity version. Is your language missing? Send your translation, we will add it with your name on lettertohumanity.org.

What is your view on the coronavirus?
Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.Comment
