As The Earth Bleeds
"The Dwarves dug too greedily and too deep. You know what they awoke in the darkness of Khazad-dum... shadow and flame." Saruman, The Lord of the Rings
I just cannot believe that this is being allowed to go on and on. This is not just yet another spill which nature can detoxify from this is an open wound. Yet in the pictures that I have seen on the web at the scene of this tragedy there are only a tiny few boats which they say are scooping up oil?
It is only a show. If those few, little boats are scooping up oil and you can still see oil like long red snakes swarming into the water why is not the ocean full of ships scooping up oil? They say they are going to clean this up. There is no cleaning this up, this has not even stopped. Why isn’t the whole world out there stopping this?
This affects our whole world. When the hurricane season arrives, which it will soon, all those miles and miles of big black clouds full of chemicals that they keep fueling are going to blow inland. Hurricane Ike blew rain all the way from this same Gulf of Mexico to my little Ohio and rained down a few years ago. Every time I pick a berry, listen to a bird or admire a flower now I wonder if this muck that we have created is going to rain down on me and mine. The thing is, it is all me and mine, this is our world that we are destroying for the mighty Lord Dollar.
That the outcome of this is being left up to BP blows my mind, obviously they don’t care! All they care about is how much money they are going to make. Any illusions I might have had that there was a big brother out there watching out for us is now gone. The gulf should be packed with the best minds in the world to solve this rupture.
It breaks my heart to think that those who work only from self interest, those whose hearts are filled with greed and have no understanding of the fact that what they do to the earth they do to themselves, these spiritual children are going to be allowed to kill our earth. So many people think that we are going to get raptured out of here so we won’t need the earth anyway. You know what, I just don’t think I could be happy in heaven if I knew that I had any part, ( by my lifestyle?) in contributing to rape and death of this beautiful planet earth, I just don’t think I could ever get over that.
