I Want To Live
Genesis 1: 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Anyone who knows me, knows that I love the words, music, and life purpose of the late great John Denver. As I reflect on this last decade since his passing I can't help but think that the good Lord took him home as so he did not have to see that his message of so many years seemed to have fallen on deaf ears.
Chunks of ice bergs are falling off into the ocean, birds in the rain forest are mimicking the sound of buzz saws that are destroying them on a daily basis, and skin cancers are at an all time high. Change is desperately needed, and now!
When we finally begin to see programs put into place to create alternative energy, let us not complain about the dollar cost, as the cost to the future of this planet is much higher. As the planet is destroyed so will it's inhabitants be destroyed.
While I do not agree with everything in the movie Home, I do agree with the consequences of global warming, depletion of natural resources, and the future that awaits us if we do not stop the insane destruction of planet earth, our home. The movie shows some of the beauty of this world, the beauty that future generations may never get a chance to see.
We must insure that these little ones have a future and a hope.
.. How sad it would be if the sight of a hummingbird at a back porch feeder would only be a memory of days gone by.
