Here come the locust...
We're calling this weird Wednesday!
Kind of like freaky Friday...
We're posting our weekend post today and on the weekend doing what would be wordless Wednesday.
Why you ask?
Just to keep you on your toes...
So, Hurricane Harvey and now Irma the largest most devastating hurricane on record in the Atlantic.
Thousands of acres of wildfires through out California, Oregon, Montana and Idaho to name a few.
An 8 point plus earthquake in Mexico
40 days and forty nights and then some of rain...
It all feels a little too apocalyptic for comfort.
Any minute I expect to look out the window and see hoards of locust filling the sky!
You may be asking your self, "why is all this devastation and doom taking place?"
With Thanksgiving right around the corner we thought this might be a good time for we as a society to do a little self introspection,
They say what goes around comes around , you reap what you sow, you get what you give,
Simply put; pay back's a bitch!
We've gutted the planet to suck out every drop of oil we can.
We've ignored or dismissed global warming/climate change.
We've used the oceans as our own personal garbage cans.
Let's face it we've treated the planet that we call home like one giant toilet .
Can we really blame Mother Nature for being just a little ticked off?
We live in Seattle.
People here like to say how beautiful it is, how green and lush.
There's the Pacific Ocean and the mountains and the forests...
We're very progressive
A couple weeks ago the moon was full, it was also red!
Shrouded in smoky brown pollution from wildfires burning on the other side of those mountains.
It is easy to pass these events off as one time things and go about our business and wonder why at times it seem like the sky is falling.
When one of these events occurs we seem perfectly content to throw a telethon, donate a few dollars and light a candle for a day or two.
Then we pat ourselves on the back knowing we've done something.
Let me introduce you to someone who's actually done something;
Meet Xiuhtezcatl Martinez who started earthguardians.org.
He became an activist at the wise old age of six.
Now tell me again why you aren't doing something to help. Go ahead I dare you.
Have a great Wednesday...
