Are We There Yet?

Are We There Yet?
This is the sign that is over the front door of Aileen's and my house, our home, going OUT. Meaning that when someone leaves our house they are going into the ACTUAL Mental Ward.

I've always felt that way. When it is considered how much ugliness and killing and hatred there is in the world today, it actually makes perfect sense that this sign is over the door going out of the house.

Because that's where the real mental ward is.

Tell the EPA to ban bee-killing pesticides

Tell the EPA to ban bee-killing pesticides

3:30 PM, EST:

This is something that a lot of people may not be thinking of all the time.  And that's probably not a wise thing to do.  Because the number of bees in the world is in fact shrinking and it is as a result of the pesticides and other things taking place.  So at the very least we are in fact contributing to this problem.  And it may not be a big problem.  Right now.  But if we don't take action to prevent it from getting any worse.  It could get so bad that there just won't be enough food left for very many people to eat.  That's how important bees are to food production.

And again in my mind it is unconscionable that we as adults are not being better custodians of this planet.  We are rushing around trying to get as much money as we can.  We are competing with each other and trying to kill each other destroying nations and entire cultures and historical sites and religious sites everywhere.  We are murdering children killing women destroying this planet.  All because we don't even know how to get along with each other.  And usually it simply over a point of view.

The losers?  They are our children.  Because we are not teaching our children to live in nonviolent ways and to communicate better with each other.  We are teaching our children hatred and killing and murder and violence.  Not all of us by any means.  But the right-wing extremists in every single religion and in every single country are teaching their children violence and killing and hatred and racism and a lot of other things.  And while all that is going on and while everybody's rushing around to get as much stuff for themselves as they can and the highest much junk.  How many of us are thinking about our children and the future they are going to have?

If we don't take care of this problem now.  And if we don't start dealing with this problem of the decrease in the number of bees then we are going to find within a rather unbelievably short amount of time that there will not be enough bees to support the food production that we as human beings need here in the world.

It is on that basis and because as a parent I do want to give our children something better.  I want to give our children a world they can build on.  Not a world they have to fix as a result of my generation's selfishness, greed, dishonesty and extremism.  We have to do better.  Our children deserve for us to do better.  They need for us to do better.

I am urging you, all of my readers, to please support & this petition.

Thank you.
