V. I believe this beautiful place we live on, called Earth, will survive, no matter what we do to it...but the question is...will we still want to live on it? It will change and evolve and change again...I just don't believe we will want to be here if we keep on doing all the things we are currently doing.
So we think about recycling, eating locally to keep emissions down by long distance trucking, riding your bike instead of taking the car, don't fly so often, etc., etc., yes, all the small stuff...and we can go to bed each night thinking we are doing our bit...but are all of these things just a band aid...I think so...they are just a cover up to keep us busy thinking we are actually doing something to help...I think just distractions from the really big things out there that are taking place that we have no idea about. But I will do them just the same, and when information reaches me that even whispers of the 'really big stuff', then I will ask questions until I get answers and then I will ask some more. Once we know something it can never be unknown..I think someone famous said that, I just can't remember who, but I do believe it to be true.
When the news flares up of a politician or sports celebrity having an affair, take a look for the small print somewhere it will probably read about a bill being passed that allows for the dumping of toxic waste in our oceans or the sale of our water to some other country, and do not believe that you cannot make a difference...stick your head out the window, like that fellow in the movie, and shout..."I"M MAD AS HELL AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANY MORE!"
And as for the dolphins, how wonderful to be with dolphins in there natural habit, it is a gift, the sad part is that these dolphins are so full of mercury because of what we dump in the oceans...also go see the movie 'The Cove" directed by National Geographic photographer Louie Psihoyos...and tell the world... this isn't the small stuff...this is something that has been hidden for years...so for all of those out there who visit Sea World or some other so called water amusement park...think about the real price that really had to be paid to see 'Flipper' jump through a hoop!
