As the clock strikes 3, I sit here with my thoughts. Those thoughts tonight are about our planet, so beautiful, so bountiful, the only reason we exist! And look how we treat her. We dump our trash in her oceans, we bury it in her soils, we drill holes in her to take her secrets from deep beneath the surface. We burn those secrets she has kept hidden for so long, and pollute her air! We run pipelines to carry those secrets all across the nation, and they break and spill those secrets into the soil and water, the lifelines of all on this earth. Yet we don't seem to care. As long as we personally don't have to suffer the pain, so what? Let others care for themselves, it's not my job.
Is that what humanity is?
Is that what we are?
We use social media for many things, not the least of which is communication. It used to be good. Now we have a hard time believing anything! We used to use it for friendship and we still do.
But something has changed. We now use it to tear each other apart, hurling insult after insult because "Oh, you hurt my feelings" or "your values don't align with mine, therefore you are an asshole" or "that's not true, FOX says so"!
It's easy to throw insults, it's not easy to seek common ground. We are all being played at this time by our supposed elected officials. Our government is corrupt, our officials are traitors, and the American oligarchs already own this country. WE ARE DIVIDED!
Those who do not see it, or choose not to, are blind!
Those of you who do see it and don't do or choose not to do anything about it, you are cowards!
Those who stand up against all odds and believe that we are better than this are true patriots and human beings, and I applaud those of you who are willing to try to stop the leak in the dike!
I don't know where all this is going to end up, I just know if we are successful in stopping it, it will take years to undo the damage that is presently occurring.
Welcome to my world, the world of reality! Not a very nice place, is it?
May peace be with you, and I truly mean that!
