I find it very interesting how we are abusing our environment, seemingly without consequences. It breaks my heart to see what some people will do to our delicate, and priceless planet. Throwing trash, stomping out a cigarette and leaving it on the ground without a second thought. Those are only two things that show disrespect, of course there are many other things that hold more immediate consequences. When I say we, I most definitely mean some of us, probably more of us than any of us realize,but most definitely I don’t mean all of us! Some of us actually do avoid doing bad things to the environment.
I got this picture from “Mothers Clean Air’ on Facebook. Everything they post seems to hit home in some way, and I look forward to reading the next posting.
What really grabbed me was the Advise From A Tree, we could most certainly apply all those suggestions to ourselves. At least I find them appropriate to myself!
I love trees, and always have. They are stately, gently dance in the breeze, they protect birds, our homes, and wildlife of all kinds. They feel to me as if they hold so much wisdom, and understanding! Maybe that’s why owls find their place in the trees. Maybe that’s why my heart breaks when I hear of the rain forest being taken down for all kinds of reasons, mostly for someones gain!
Trees hold so much mystery, and solutions to the problems of the world. At the very least, we need them to breathe…..what happens when they no longer exist in enough quantity to keep humanity alive? Will someone come up with an artificial tree? Will it look like a tree, or will it look like just another cell tower?
Only time will tell, and I probably won’t be here to see it, but my grandchildren, great-grandchildren, or even their great-grandchildren may be, and that’s sad. Sad that some don’t seem to really care what our own family will have to go through, or how they will survive.
Is it asking too much to collectively, one day at a time, consciously work at doing just one thing more to stop the disrespect of our resources, and planet. and proudly work together to heal? I think we can do that, and I think
we need to start Now!
