#oblitusverba – Word of the day – protect

Protect…

Serve and protect? Who does this today?

Who does this today?

Do we serve and protect the people around us? Are we serving and protecting the land on which we rely?

Are we serving and protecting the land on which we rely?

 

To protect our very breath and food supply will we let go of the materialistic drive we have been taught? Do we really need that fifth black pair of boots? Do we really need that brand new phone?

Do we really need that fifth black pair of boots?

Do we really need that brand new phone?

Are we dependent on a piece of plastic in our wallet?

 

When we look at our children will we wonder what their future holds, or hide from that thought and run? What will it take to protect our children? What will it take!!?

What will it take to protect our children? What will it take!!?

What will it take!!?

 

Are we hiding from the unknown and wallowing in the boob-tube?

Will the water we take for granted today be drinkable tomorrow?

Will we have grain to eat tomorrow?

Will we find frozen dinners convenience driven lives?

Will the wrappers from or diet end up in the ocean?

 

Will we be forced to leave our home, just to find and trash another planet?

Will we commit suicide en-mass?

 

or

 

Will we change our poor ways?

Will we eat better, with less packaging?

Will we protect our water and lands?

Will we stand up for our home?

Will we bring it back to being a garden?

Will we make small changes that lead to huge impact?

Will we find ways to share our overabundances?

Will we find ways to make our society function without intense consumerism?

What steps will you take today to make tomorrow beautiful?
