|An Open Letter to President Trump|
Date: April 5, 2017
Category: Government and Politics
Dear President Trump,
On March 16, You announced a budget plan which calls for increasing funds for military spending and homeland security. To set off the increased spending, You have proposed sweeping cuts to several different governmental organizations that you and your administration may not think are necessary for American life.
We at The International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA) are aware of the implications of these budget cuts and would like to defend Environmental Arts Programs like the WORLDS CHILDREN PEACE MONUMENT (WCPM), COASTWEEKS dot Com and the National Coast-to-Coast ‘GREAT AMERICAN PEACE TRAIL’. Across the world, the Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts is the cultural backbone of communities. The Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts can influence another culture and even bring cultures together. Environmental Arts is so strong on the global stage because of our uniqueness. The music, artwork and theater are all global phenomena using Iceality. The Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts is a powerful tool, one that the whole Trump administration should want to take full advantage of. Since 1987 in Cleveland, Ohio, Environmental Art has been a global commodity, and the power of a universal Language of Design that Environmental Arts is now considered as the cornerstone of the modern global sustainable movement and this concept is now replicated by artists, architects, urban planners and sustainable organizations throughout the World, reflecting a still growing global audience.

The Environmental Arts are also important for the American individual through the building of the GREAT AMERICAN PEACE TRAIL, and have now become a source of comfort and confidence building for Americans of all ages. Community artistic activities connected to the GREAT AMERICAN PEACE TRAIL encourage the individual to be in touch with his or her thoughts in a beautiful way and provide a healthy way for one to be in touch with his or her emotions. When someone is sad, he or she can channel sadness into a poem of peace and iceality. If someone is happy, he or she can perform an upbeat song. Any emotion in between can be channeled into the Art of Iceality in some way. The GREAT AMERICAN PEACE TRAIL can provide a way to express oneself in a world that can often silence emotions.

The GREAT AMERICAN PEACE TRAIL is also is a source of togetherness among Americans that can Unite America. Iceality allows people of all ages to create a community of good. It is touching that human beings can form such strong bonds over something so intrinsic to all cultures. Whether it’s through performing or listening, Iceality provides a common thread for all of us.
The Environmental Arts are now and always will be the centerpiece of American culture. Most popular American songs or famous American artworks are now a product of our love for Iceality in the arts. In recent years, arts programs at schools have been cut all around the country. The federal government to support the popular cause. The federal government, by supporting the environmental arts programs, says that the arts DO matter. By saying the arts do matter, the Trump Administration makes clear that the fostering of American culture is a high priority. The Trump Administration can make America great again by preservation of the soul of our country by creating the National GREAT AMERICAN PEACE TRAIL.

The International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA) for 30 years already has a strong appreciation for the arts. Poetry slams, a cappella performances, art shows and civic engagement are quite popular in Cleveland. Greater Cleveland is expands its role as global home of the International Environmental Art Movement as the Primary Economic Engine for the Region and as the ‘Cradle for a Universal Culture of Peace’ for All Living Things. (Worlds Children). We are blessed to live in one of the most well-known hubs for art in the world, whether it be at the historic ARK in Berea or Playhouse Square. The only way to support for the arts is to continue our love and support for the Environmental Arts. Promoting Iceality here at The International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA) and in our immediate community is easy and socially worthwhile.
Now that I think about it, there should be a National Iceality Day that is more encompassing in its scope than any other celebration in America. Iceality Day would be a day of potential, especially for All the Worlds Children. It is not about something ‘other’, but something we can celebrate and hold as part of ourselves. It is as intimate as Earth Day is for the Plants and Animals and International Peace Day is for the Human’s but more encompassing in its scope than any other celebration on the calendar. It is about US as much as it is about the Animals, Fish, and Birds, about the Plants and Trees, Land and Waters. There is no escaping the Planet Earth. Very few have done it and never for long. The astronauts that are on the International Space Station are going to be off the Earth for a short time; the longest time anyone has spent away from our planet yet…so the universal symbol of peace, the WCPM is ready for Peace in Space.
|“The Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts”
The WORLDS CHILDREN PEACE MONUMENT members and scholars can support the global iceality methodology on a deeper level by supporting local arts. Like arts programs in schools, local museums and galleries all over the country need funding more than ever. Although on a smaller stage, smaller museums and galleries ensure that the environmental arts continue to thrive. Volunteering and even time spent on social media sites could make a difference.
|Using the ICEALITY METHODOLOGY
teachers can now educate American Children in all American schools, colleges and university’s
We at International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA) also encourage You and Your Administration to teach the Theory of Iceality in America’s Classrooms and for scholars to take their appreciation for the environmental arts and pursue iceality as a lifelong goal. Keep performing and listening, keep painting, designing and analyzing.
Please take matters into your own hands to preserve our American environmental artistic culture for yourself, your countrymen and for All the Worlds Children.
Thank You and Peace Friend~
