Things I am grateful for #18

Our gaff – Mother Earth.

We live in a veritable paradise. Why would you want to go to heaven, when we already live in one?

But you wouldn’t know that to listen to the news. That’s because, what turns our Garden of Eden into Hell – is Mankind. And I chose that word carefully. Not, Humankind. Not Womankind. But, Mankind.

You know what? If we banned men from governance, (yes, I know that would be discrimination). But, if we banned men from governing countries, or leading armies, or heading up religions, I bet we’d have a lot less conflict in the world.

A bit preachy? Maybe. I bit worthy? Perhaps. After all, where would we be without the internet, or medicine, or technology? Most of these innovations have come via the military.

I’m not advocating a return to the Stone Age. Just a little more awareness of what we do have, before it’s all gone.
