We are the worst pestilence on this planet. Far worse than all those things we love to complain about: roaches, rats, bats, fleas, mosquitos, on and on….. whatever.
We have this glorious, miraculous, beautiful earth full of bountiful treasures. It has everything mankind could ever want or need. Food, medicines, splendor, riches we haven’t even unearthed or discovered yet.
I tell my children “leave it like you found it or better”, “clean up after yourself”, “do your part”.
Simple precepts even a child can understand.
Yet we have rulers and such that seem hellbent on destroying and conquering, pillaging and plundering to get what they want and “deserve” for themselves and “their people”.
This plague is just what the world needs to rid itself of the pestilence of mankind without destroying itself or any other creatures or habitats.
If only it could selectively destroy those which don’t treasure it and leave those that truly do love the Earth behind as caretakers and benefactors of its glorious beauty.
I have no idea how this world will end, but I put my bet on mankind doing it with nuclear weapons or destruction of the ozone or some other idiotic human toxicity.
We are a waste of a species. We really are. And I’m ok with leaving this Earth to the next wave of beings. May they be better caretakers than we have been. This glorious world deserves that. It really does.
