Dear Citizens of the Earth:
The earth whispered but you did not hear.
The earth spoke but you did not listen
The earth screamed but you turned her off.
And so I was born…
I was not born to punish you..
I was born to awaken you..
The earth cried out for help…
Massive flooding. But you didn’t listen.
Burning fires. But you didn’t listen.
Strong hurricanes. But you didn’t listen.
Terrifying Tornadoes. But you didn’t listen.
You still don’t listen to the earth when.
Ocean animals are dying due to pollutants in the waters.
Glaciers melting at an alarming rate.
You didn’t listen to how much negativity the earth is receiving.
You just kept going on with your life..
No matter how much hate there was..
No matter how many killings daily..
It was more important to get that latest iPhone than to worry about what the earth was trying to tell you..
But now I am here.
And I’ve made the world stop in its tracks.
I’ve made YOU finally listen.
I’ve made you take refuge.
I’ve made you stop thinking about materialistic things..
Now you are like the earth…
You are only worried about YOUR survival.
How does that feel?
I give you fever.. as the fires burn on earth.
I give you respiratory issues.. as pollution fills the earth air.
I give you weakness as the earth weakens every day.
I took away your comforts..
The things you would use to forget about the planet and its pain.
And I made the world stop…
China has better air quality.. Skies are clear blue because factories are not spewing pollution into the earth’s air.
The water in Venice is clean and dolphins are being seen because the gondola boats that pollute the water are not being used.
YOU are having to take time to reflect on what is important in your life.
Again, I am not here to punish you.. I am here to Awaken you…
When all this is over and I am gone… Please remember these moments..
Listen to the earth.
Listen to your soul.
Stop polluting the earth.
Stop fighting among each other.
Stop caring about materialistic things.
And start loving your neighbors.
Start caring about the earth and all its creatures.
Start believing in a Creator.
Because next time I may come back . . . even stronger.
PS. You can spell the word savior inside of Coronavirus. And isn’t this everyone’s lesson to find the savior within us (whatever we call the greater power within us) to get us through these difficult times and become the best people we can for each other and the planet. We need to remember we are all one and anything we do explicitly affects others as well as the earth. Let’s all listen to the savior within ourselves to heal our individual wounds and in turn heal the planet. We can then be grateful for the lesson that is being presented to each and every one of us. We can become the change we want to see.
