City of Roses
Hey Balladeer, bless you for speaking out for these innocent seals, and against this proposed act of slaughter against tens of thousands of them.
It's exactly how you titled it as. Slaughter on Mother Nature. We are all God's people and creations, and we should be treating seals among all other creations as our brothers, sisters and relatives.
Edward Munch said, "Nature is not only all that is visible to the eye...it also includes the inner pictures of the soul." (sad sigh) My feelings for protecting all other species of the world run in the same vein as my feelings in preserving our environment and last remaining old-growth forests. My greatest fear is if we were to wake up years from now and find we've lost it all, all that remains is the stinging plague of regret. We can stop this from happening, but we need all the support as possible.
There is no economic benefit to the killing of animals as there is for cutting down trees. We must also encourage the critical issue of sustainability, education of why our environment is so important to protect, and the need to propose alternative methods for providing the young with food, clothing, fuel, etc. which would prove far more economical.
Vincent van Gogh once said, "It is not the language of painters but the language of nature which one should listen to, the feeling for the things themselves, for reality, is more important than the feeling for pictures."
Let's see to it, hope, and promise the children of tomorrow that they can see these precious seals just as we have right before their very eyes, and not just in a photograph.
God Bless You, Michael! I will spread the word among other communities!
