Tribute To God's Creation - draft

I heard something this morning that filled my heart with sorrow.
I am still crying.
Shame filled my soul for being a part of the human race.

The beautiful, shiny, happy people have been allowed to bring more destruction on a hurting earth.

It seems that an extra airport was built smack in the middle of the rice fields where the migratory canadian and snow geese make their winter homes. There are two huge airports in Houston, Texas, but the shiny, happy, beautiful people had to have one more where they could land their ‘private’, shiny planes.

Some of the local birds such as the egrets, herons, the mourning doves with their soulful cries, the meadowlarks, the quail with their tiny little babies, among many others…were in the way.

So, the beautiful, shiny, happy people stomped their feet and threw some of their shiny money at the local politicians and they bought “permits” to shoot many of these birds from the area so they can take off and land their important, expensive, shiny airplanes. It may have been too much trouble to use Hobby or Intercontinental Airport.

My mind takes me back many years. I am standing in my mother’s backyard. We are watching thousands upon thousands of migratory geese flying towards the rice fields. We watch their perfect formations. We hear their honking. Only a few miles from my mother’s backyard, they will spend their winter in the rice fields. It is beautiful to watch. They know exactly where they are going. They are heading for home.

Today, my mother told me she only viewed a couple of formations. Today, she explained that she heard they are flying around in confusion, trying to find their winter homes.

I hope the beautiful, shiny, happy people are “happy” now. They will be able to eradicate many birds so they will be safe as they fly their expensive, shiny planes in and out of the airport that should have never been.

I have decided something in my heart. I will not vote again, for anybody. You may all say I am foolish. Go right ahead! I have not heard of a candidate that is not ruled by money and power.

One day, this will all be made right. Go ahead and disagree. It will.
