I know I don’t look the part or talk the talk, but I really do care about all the critters from the grand to the small. It is so mindbaggling to me how insensitive and detached we have become as a species. We have completely forgotten our roots as members of the animal kingdom. We then denied our roots to each other as a tribe, casting away all attachment to culture, heritage. We then take the blasphemy even further, sinking unthinkable funding into sports and military, while the arts die and people grow weary of education without creative connection. We have traveled this road in the name of progress. It is no wonder we have grown so sad and unsatisfied. We are denying our very needs in favor of our wants.
Today I cry for our fellow inhabitants of this planet. Pacific Gas and Electric is planning to conduct a seismic “research” project the equivalent of a war for 17 days under the ocean. The affected creatures have no voice they can understand. But they can hear ours.
