Our Oceans, Our Planet

The Ocean is a big part of my life, I love spending my time near it, walking next to it, just sitting and talking to it. I named my first child after it. I hope my grand kids and their kids and kids and kids...get to enjoy it as much as I have in my time on this earth. 

Unfortunately there isn't a day that goes by that I am not painfully thinking about our oceans, and what is happening at this very moment.

I feel that it has been thrown to the side so to speak in the media. Its no longer a top story..why? This should be on everyone's mind...constantly. After all we live here, and want to breath clean air, drink fresh water, and be surrounded by beauty?

I saw Earthlings some time ago, and when they referred to other creatures that we share this planet with as other nations. It was a profound moment in my life.

I am so sad, all these beautiful creatures are choking to death on oil, or burned alive. This whole situation is F**ked! I feel so helpless.

Why do humans feel so entitled?

  1. Oh Kirsten, what a truth-telling post--bravo and thank you for this reminder. The whole mess in the Gulf is almost too much to comprehend. From the photos you've shared, you DO live near a beautiful part of the world and are so lucky!

  2. Yes, the Gulf disaster it not even a top story anymore. Just talked about it with a friend today. Makes me so sick.
    Humans behave like that because of the power and money they are afraid to loose.
    My dad always used to tell me that most people are not very smart and disinterested. I completely agree. So how do we turn this boat around?

  3. Oh mama...I feel you girl! It's crazy absolutely crazy.

  4. Kelly....thanks, I do live in a beautiful part of the world but it won't be for long, if we keep going the way we have been.

    Rockies...People would be more interested if it was in there backyard. As for how we turn this boat around, I am not sure. I hope that humans can evolve.

    MoonMama... :(
