Earth Day

 

2021.4.22milkywayblog_

 

That we dedicate a day for the celebration of the Earth

is absurd and also necessary.

 

The, so called, "most intelligent" creatures that life has spawned

can't even protect that which sustains their very existence.

(It wasn't always this way.)

 

There are people involved in the destruction of our air, water and soil

who just don't care.

They don't see the earth as a living, breathing, life sustaining entity -

all they see is profit and power.

 

They continue to exploit the natural resources that belong to all of us

without consideration of the consequences,

much to our peril

and all in pursuit of profit and the power that comes with it.

 

Promises are made and broken.

They just don't care.

 

You and me - we can do our part and should continue to do our part -

but until corporations and governments stop tearing the fabric of life apart

we are doomed.

It is a few at the top,

the very top of the pyramid who allow the destruction to continue.

 

There are new promises in the works that will help to mitigate the destruction -

let's hope it is not too little too late

and that those promises are not broken.

 

It is time to hold their feet to the fire -

hold those in power accountable and don't let up.

 

 

"We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality,

tied in a single garment of destiny.

Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly."

In an attempt to remain positive in my blog, I must say that I am positive that we are in a very precarious situation!
