The Whisper of a Shadow

My voice is so tiny. The shouting so loud.

Demonstration. Massive Demonstration.
Climate change. Global warming.
Same procedure as usual.
Only louder.

How many of the demonstrators are going to be drinking Cokes and other sodas? The soft drink industry is a major environmental contaminator. But no one has been encouraged to bring a flask with and for water. Global warming threatens the life of millions, perhaps everyone, but it’s too much to ask people to abstain from soft drinks.

How many of the demonstrators are going to eat at a junk food restaurant chain and contribute to corporate profits and the exploitation of underpaid workers while promoting environmental contamination through industrial farming, rivers of pesticides, gene-manipulated plants, chemically enhanced animals, palm oil … not to mention the environmentally damaging advertisements and the logistics of long distance distribution? Have the organizers recommended packing a lunch or bringing a supply of rations to the battle?

How many harmful chemicals will the demonstrators have flushed and drained into the ocean in preparation for the great demonstration? UNNECESSARY cosmetics and personal-hygiene products cause environmental damage on par with cars. I’ve seen no encouragement to come to the march clean and natural.

There’s a lot more to say, but who listens to a whisper in a storm of shouts from a marching herd.

    Your images and prolific voice infuse me with endless inspiration, my friend; you enlighten my day with each and every one of your welcome posts from several sites. (btw, must be said; coke (nor any ‘sugar’ or ‘aspartame’ infused soft drink is NOT ‘the real thing!’) “Up and at ’em,” wise one!

      Thanks Camelien,
      Your kind words inspire me. I’ve been called wise guy before, but never wise one.
