Our Beautiful Earth.....what have we done?

Oh Beautiful for smoggy skies, insecticided grain,
For strip-mined mountain's majesty above the asphalt plain.
America, America, man sheds his waste on thee,
And hides the pines with billboard signs, from sea to oily sea.

~George Carlin

Reading this and seeing it happen before my very eyes (Oil spill 2010) Makes me feel like,What are we leaving for our children,What did are parents leave us???

I do not want my children growing up thinking that because of the sins of the parents that it is okay to keep on destroying their Earth. I am focusing very much this year on,How are actions and lack of actions have and are and will effect the earth and because of how the earth is changing will effect us and future generations to come.

I think that the ol' saying "being to old to change" might have some truth to it...But luckily we have a whole new generation before us and new one being born every day..So all is not lost because they are defiantly not to old to be taught new ways of thinking .

I know that our world has become so dependent on the advancements we have made throughout time,and I realise that it would be impossible for us to go back to a time before this ..I dont expect this to happen...but just because we can not today change the "BIG" things doesnt mean we should not try and change the small ones,and educate ourselves and our children on the bigger issues at hand ,Because who knows if are child maybe the next president ..and with that sort of foundation placed early on who knows what they may do to make this world a Better place to live!
