Have you noticed how crowded it's been lately.
Even getting away from it all's becoming more and more difficult.
The reason is that there are now 7 billion of us who share Planet Earth.
Seven billion people who get hungry and have needs. Most will never be met.
Most disagree with what the other 6,999,999,999 people say and do.
A handful of that seven billion control the world's wealth. They continue to want more.
Their greed is destroying our world.
Our world isn't a global village.
It's a global monster. Out of control!
There are so many who, simply, unfortunately, will exist here only for a short, painful time and then die. Unfulfilled human beings.
Because the problems are so widespread it's become increasingly difficult for an individual to do anything to help.
Perhaps the only way to make a difference and I acknowledge it seems selfish, is to fix our own little corners of the world, to try and make sure that the people and things around us are as good as they can be.
The world has become big, ugly and impersonal.
Let's get back to small, beautiful and personal...

Well said - we will back you all the way.ReplyDelete
And they (the politicians and the vested interests) tell us it's not really too many, put your faith in new technology...We ARE too many. how long the planet can sustain this is uncertain. And you're right, it is so daunting, so overwhelming, that we can only try and see to our little corner of life.ReplyDelete
