  1. …gulp. It really seems that way doesn’t it? Well arranged words my friend…clear and concise and they say it all! Judgements everywhere and all the way. Humans too entangled in their big egos…it is sad to see and hear and no, they do not get it. But we will keep on trying and doing our little bit in our little corner of this planet…and live in Hope. Awesome picture…gulp…! 😦

      1. I’m trying but people are so content with the emptiness that they would rather revel in it than be repulsed…. we are like cancer patients who are in so much love with their malignancy that they can even justify their spreading it to others including their own children. WTF!!!

  2. well said. in simple and plain words. There are veils that block us from seeing everyone as we ought to; me in another body, with a different ideology, faith system and social standing. with all the stereotypes when one is cut, we all ooze a blood that is red in colour!

  3. The need to believe that one has a god more powerful than another’s is crippling the World. When will the day come when we believe in US? When we know we’re one people and behave as such mankind and the planet both stand a chance at survival.
