Lament for Japan
Everything I wanted to blog about this weekend now seems frivolous and insensitive in the face of the horror that is happening in Japan. Japan, my heart and thoughts go out to you, Island nation.
We who are in Canada, protected for now by our geography, are not immune to your suffering.
Tonight, while I look at the footage coming in over the internet, while I read the words on the paper I
can not find words to express my sorrow and chagrin for the people of this country.
Wake up. The poisons that are currently being released will not be contained nor isolated in a little corner of the earth. We, the offspring of Earth can no longer talk endlessly of change. We are being forced to change- our destructive ways,our greed for more, our egocentricity. Big changes are happening-whether we like it or not.
