We all, on this planet, have one Mother

And we argue about who our Father is

on this planet.


It’s not too far different from many

homes in my country.

But we just got told that our Mother

is very, very ill.


And the scientists and environmentalists are working hard.


But I want a list of tasks

I went from all gas to all electric

I bought all energy efficient light bulbs

I cool my home with fresh air whenever possible

to save on energy strain during the hot days.

I want more.

I want a list … a LONG one.


Maybe many of us do.

Especially last week, when my home state, California, was literally on fire.


Tell us how every single one of us can help.

Right now.

More than the above.
