This is part of the series Garden of Truth.
I started out on social media asking people about their truths. This was one of the truths that holds true for all of us. We have only one planet; we need to take care of her.
With the social and political climate of today this becomes even more true. When our leaders do not believe scientists that global warming is a real threat, when oil becomes more important clean water, when fracking starts pulling our planet apart, we have a problem.
Due to the clearing of tree lines in the farm belt, we are losing top soil at an alarming rate, all for the almighty dollar, they can get a few more acres of crops planted.
I feel so sad when I think about all this. So this piece is to bring awareness to all that. It’s a Truth for all of us.
