Another blogger, kavi, at http://www.wingrish.wordpress.com …reminded me of the devastation the earth has suffered at the hands of humankind. We then both remembered Michael Jackson’s Earth Song, a powerful statement asking the question, on behalf of all species disenfranchised by man’s destruction of our environment…“What about us???”
A moving plea which deserves an answer…one that will most likely…never come…or come…too late.
…kicking the can…down the road…
Hugmamma, I love your generosity – sharing the blogs you enjoy with others. This one is one of my favorites. I also enjoy posts about you and your family. I have nominated you for The Lovely Blogger Award. You can find the details on my blog.
Very grateful for your nomination. Means a lot. Have not gotten back earlier…have been pondering accepting based upon your kind words.
I’ve been entrenched in voicing my opinions about the current election elsewhere on the Internet. But have felt compelled to bring the conversation home to…hugmamma’s mind, body, and soul. Not so much to force my political choice, but to voice certain issues which I find somewhat immoral…or downright immoral.
Hope you understand my decision to humbly decline, since I’ve chosen not to limit myself to only telling autobiographical stories. 🙂
I wish we could turn back the hands of time and preserve some of the beautiful places and animals that have been destroyed because of greed. We should not be, as you said, “kicking the can down the road.” I’ve never seen this video before. Very powerful, hugmamma. Thank you for sharing.
I took the message from Kavi…and I’m passing it along. Thanks for joining our relay efforts to do what we can. Earth Song is one of my favorite MJ videos. So glad you found it powerful. 🙂
love the note you signed off on 🙂 Mentioned you & this video in my latest post on recycling.
We can do our bit, by sharing the message with as many readers as possible. Hugs for…getting the ball rolling. 🙂
