Was Kermit right when he sang "It’s not easy being Green"..?

Posted: 11 JUL 11 Written by: Sharon Settecasse

It IS easy being Green!!

When Kermit the Frog starts his lament, sitting alone on that patch of grass, the helplessness of his situation seems overwhelming — but all it takes is a simple key change to send his song soaring into positivity.

That key change is really just a change in attitude! Kermit collects all the positive aspects of his situation and the song ends with his little puppet arms jerking about in happiness. He has his famous epiphany: it IS easy being Green!

I hope by the end of this post you’ll be inspired to jerk your arms around about being green(er) and … start a food garden in your school.

I love these videos
