Full of hope, full of grace, is the human face but afraid we may lose our home to waste - Throwing Stones
As the Earth retaliates against our slow but certain destruction of her, I wonder how it ever came to be. The gradual evolution of mankind becoming more and more selfish. Our never ending cries of "Me!" being answered by Mother Nature with severe weather. Answered by corporations with inflated prices. Yet there really are no answers. It is too late to answer our cries for help. Few will take responsibility for our contributions. Those who encourage those who do not are scorned. My heart is bleeding.

Very bad to screw with Mother Nature.

I read recently about a contest for prose poems. I thought of you. You write prose poetry. It is beautiful. If you ask, I'll try to find the place for you.

Thank you for this.

I wish you would have posted a link for your source. My research shows nothing close to that figure.

Please note that Joe American has given 4x more than the corporations.

"The Chronicle of Philanthropy reported that Americans have given more than $93 million in aid, including more than $27 million from corporations."

Again, we must all share in the responsibility. I am not pointing the finger at corporations but greed.

Individual and collective greed. We all play our part. And I reckon we can all play our part to heal - each and every one of us.

Good to read something of quality! (LOL - not that I am a poster of anything of quality!!!)

Global warming will continue to pack a punch. We're helping to make hurricanes on steroids with the burning of fossil fuels. The conservative movement (environmental, not political) in this country needs to get in GEAR and educate a selfish, stupid public about what their addiction to cars and gasoline is reaping.

The environmental groups have been teaching and talking about global warming, addiction to speed/cars/gas, and our consumer culture. The problem is they are faced with competing messages from Exxon, Ford, WalMart...and they have a lot more money and Bush on their side. The environmental groups messages fall onto deaf ears or ears seduced by our "culture."
