Chief Seattle on Mother Nature
9:44 pm est
In 1855, an American Indian Prophet, Chief Seattle, tried to enlighten the then President of the United States. He
said; "Teach your children what we have taught our children, that the Earth is our Mother. Whatever befalls the Earth,
befalls the children of the Earth. If we spit on the ground, we spit on ourselves". No one listened and the white man
If we are ever to see a day or place where peace reigns supreme and the wolf will dwell with the lamb,
and the leopard shall lie down with the kid, and the lion shall eat straw with the ox, then we must honor the magnificent,
ultimate trust God put in us and save the lives of all His blessed creatures of creation and our home "EARTH".
animals are a barometer of the environment and we are losing 3 species a day! This is the same environment we depend on for
life. We are not dealing with just a sickness or disease, we are dealing with Extinction, soon it will be our own.
species was created to fit its individual needs and place in a balanced environment. We are the only species altering the
planet to suit our will and needs. Stephen Hawking, a brilliant mind of our time has said: "I don't think the human
race will last 100 years". I think he is right.
God made a promise to us that he would never destroy the earth
again. He is quite surprised that we are doing it to ourselves

What In The World Have We Humans Done??
11:18 pm est
Here I am in my mid fifties, and having lived over half a centure I've seen a lot.
I was fortunate to grow up when the
world was beautiful and pretty clean. People were friendly, free enterprise in the form of Family Business succeeded, which
supported the town or community. Churchs served the community and the community had values and morals.
Our world had
abundand and diverse species of wildlife that lived in vital habitats untouched. Our planet was a beautiful living organism,
a perfected machine working in harmony. Now the machinery of "Mother Nature" has it's works all stopped up,
developed or polluted.
Now I look around and see nothing but a frightening mess. Starting with the Governments being
corrupt, the very foundation of upon which civilization depends on for stability and management. Corporations now control
as many of our actions as possible shaping society, and the shape it has formed is a monster.
Our Mother Earth, the
environment in which we end on our very life force is a horrific mess of a cesspool of pollutants and over population abuse
of the natural resources.
At times I see Mother Nature fighting back with mutant virus, bacteria, crop failures, horrific
storms, and other natural happenings. I don't blame her at all for wanting to shed humans, the only species on Earth to
fowl it's own nest.
Here in America people who have worked hard all their life to live the American Dream are loseing
it all now. Why?????
When did it all start to go so bad? How did this happen? Who or what is responsible? Any body have
any ideas on this subject?
