I can barely see to type through the tears coursing down from my eyes - and I am not normally an emotional person.
We have forgotten how to take only that which we need. To take and to not leave a scar on this planet. A scar which indicates our greed. Which indicates our brief time spent on this beautiful planet.
This movie (1 hour, 33 minutes and 18 seconds long), taken from the air, illustrates how minuscule humankind really is in the grand scheme of things.
How dare we damage this world the way we are doing?
20% of the worlds population consumes 80% of it's resources. 2% of the world's population holds 80% of it's wealth. No matter how much the wealthy "donate" to charity / build a school, the damage they have done to the poorest can never be justified. And the poorest, in most instances, have been working to make the rich richer, and to just barely survive themselves.
What has mankind become. Generally, I would say, a monster.
The scars we leave behind will be the legacy - of eating of that apple in the Garden of Eden. For we haven't just eaten, we have gorged ourselves.
I'm crying for this planet. This wonderful, amazing, beautiful life-giving planet.
What are we waiting for - what will finally be the impetus that makes us change, and remember where we come from and who we are?
We are all linked - we have to help - not just each other, but this planet.
