I happened to watch the video for Michael Jackson's "Earth Song" this week. It'd been so long since I had seen it, but it comes closer than anything I have seen in a long time to showing the kind of desperate, heart-breaking, incomprehensible grief and intensity I feel over the devastating destruction of the planet and abhorrent suffering of all living beings. Such a grief and anger and helplessness that goes beyond expression and comprehension. HOW CAN ANYONE ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN, to choose greed and self-interest over the protection and sanctity of lives, of LIFE? I don't understand. I only hope that more and more people are inspired to do something, anything! Each action, no matter how big or small, makes a difference and fights back!
