http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=TQmz6Rbpnu0 The courage of this young girl! I had never seen this video before but it came into a large circulation in my news feed (very encouraging) and felt the need to share it here. I don't and won't understand the people (and I have even seen them on GC) that say whatever we do is natural, since we are natural and all things are natural whatever we do is okay and fine with nature. Like burning down a forest is natural because fire and trees come from nature.... I get so pissed off and upset, I don't understand how the world can be so completely blind to each other and our only home. I was once laughed at by my mother in law for recycling, because I want to "save the animals" as she put it. Because we don't live on this planet too? What is "away", when you throw something away? Is there really an "away"? No, it goes somewhere, on this planet, where we live too. It pollutes our oceans and our drinking water, it pollutes another person's country, it seeps toxins into soil we eat our food from, and most of our trash won't ever go away. It's not about "saving the animals" it's about saving ourselves. It's baffling how we can be so disconnected. Sorry, emotional subject as the mother of a youngin, and I felt the need to share the video here. Sorry if this is the wrong place, but I know far too many people who still believe the world we live in and what we do to it is just fine the way it is. I don't know how anyone can remain so blind and ignorant to the problems we face on literally our only home, and so far the only planet in the entire universe that is known to have life, yet we treat it like we have 50 Earths lined up.
