    She is heavy...
    6.6 sextillion tons.
    She is ancient...
    4.5 billion years old.
    Her body spins at
    1,050 miles per hour
    while gliding through the heavens at a blazing
    1,100 miles a minute
    She circles our sun
    which is 93 million miles away
    moving at 9,000 miles per minute
    awesome facts
    all alone.

    Her rotation
    gives us night and day
    Her revolution
    around the sun
    gives us our seasons
    We count our years of existence
    by these revolutions

    SHE IS OUR ONLY HOME

    She is....our...only....................home.

    Three quarters of her is water...
    we dump a million tons of raw sewage
    industrial waste and poisonous chemicals
    into these waters...every...day.

    She protects us from deadly
    UV and cosmic rays via
    our Sun
    WE deplete our ozone layer
    daily
    severely...through coal burning power plants
    medical waste incineration
    insufficient EPA standards
    for our
    autos...

    Shes warning us...
    HAILRAINEARTHQUAKESTORNADOESHURRICANESLANDSLIDESTYPHOONS
    VOLCANICERUPTIONS..DROUGHT.....FAMINE.

    There is a dead zone
    the size of N.J.
    starts at the mouth of
    the Mississippi
    and delves into the
    Gulf of Mexico
    for hundreds of miles where
    NOTHING
    GROWS OR LIVES

    She gives us our daily bread
    from her ripe fields
    and bountiful savannahs
    and blesses us with fresh water
    and fresh air through her trees
    Shes a beauty to behold
    there are lessons in her moods
    and cycles for a wise man
    her chastisements come in
    many forms for the foolish

    She is the Original Revealed Book.
    The study of her nature
    will give an illiterate man
    knowledge, wisdom, and
    understanding.

    We give her Mercury and sulfur dioxides
    We rape her for profit.

    She is Gods creation...He warns us through her.

    She is tired....God is Prepared.

    what do you see ????

    i am soooo feeling this right about now.
    a class i'm taking has hipped me to more current events that i don't care to know about because it's terribly depressing. i'm hoping that one day someone with influence will be enlightened to the point of making a change.
    thanks for this.

    peace and blessings
