A light in the dark…

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 9:52 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the sunny, comfortable and peaceful island of Nantucket! Great to be back with you on a Saturday morning, the 19th day of July, 2014, just returning from kayaking Hyannis Port’s rich supply of wildlife in and about the waters of this sacred sand bar created 11,500 years ago by the Last Great Ice Age…Osprey, Chickadee’s, Cardinals, Laughing gulls, Greater Black Backs, Snowy Egrets, Great Blue Herons, Oyster Catchers, Terns, Green Herons, Piping Plovers, Blue Jays, Grackles, Common Gulls, Peregrine Falcons and the occasional Marsh Hawk as it swoops in and out of the reeds looking for it’s prey, repeating the never ending circle of life.  These animals seem to possess more nobility at times than man.

This past week has seen it’s share of that life taken in extraordinary ways, innocent life that is.  With the wars waging in Ukraine/Russian border towns, resulting in a mad act of blowing a commercial jet out of the sky, to the blood shed rampant now in the Gaza strip–Palestinian civilians taking the biggest hit, mostly woman and children; over 300 killed thus far in this most recent conflict between Israel and the people of Palestine–while in this country, the innocents come in the form of babes in the wood, “dangerous and diseased” woman and children from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, fleeing oppression and wars not of their making nor of their understanding, indeed escaping in full flight and fear to a land where at least they may have a CHANCE at surviving another day.  “Yet the humans would give no LOVE”.

Wouldn’t you like to take ‘ole congressman Louis Gomert out to the wood shed and have a little chat?  What an a$$hole!  That’s right folks, what the world needs now is not LOVE but more hate!  Just ask Roger Ailes of FOX “NEWS”, he’ll tell ya!  “Do we still have that booking with Sarah Palin?  Good, she is a fire cracker that one, and sharp as a tack, you betcha, oh my God, did I just say that?”…  So as we watch the western United States burn in more ways than one on national television every night, the question on everyone’s mind this morning is when is some sanity going to enter the picture?  When does the POWER of the collective good, combined with reason, win the day? When?

The innocent lives of people who only want to live those lives in peace and under a fair system of governance, one where the little guy is not stacked up against a billionaire whose voice is now paramount, (legally too thanks to SCOTUS), yes those lives, real lives that far outweigh the needs of the greedy few, are the lives that ultimately count the most and in a democratic sovereign nation. A TRUISM that will eventually DAWN on the many, who will–as the seas continue to rise and the temperatures go up–demand a FAIR SHAKE, destroying the rotten, can somebody say Denmark?, rigged system that is destroying our natural order, one based on the ebb and flow of God given waters that will be worth more than GOLD someday. You can bet your bottom dollar on that one.  Have a great week end folks and please come on back and visit us here at seacapecod.net, we will as always, leave the LIGHT on for ya!  PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
