I’ve had this in the back of my mind ever since I watched it the first time. It speaks (pun intended) to me at a deeper level that I am usually reluctant to share. I’ve spent time thinking about that and whether I should reblog it or not. I realize it’s a gloomy way to launch a new year, but my hope is that this short film will touch others who see it and perhaps pass it on to others who see it and pass it on…and on, and on, and on…and then 2014 will be a year of changes for the good of our world and our continued sustenance.

Happy New Year…

Their message is one we all need to acknowledge.  The world we are leaving to our children is one that is in much worse shape than it was when we inherited it from our forefathers. We’ve (mankind) been very poor custodians…used up species and resources that can never be replaced….depleted the energy that supports our very existence~~and our children’s.

When I consider what we once had…and what we now leave behind for future generations to cope with and have to accommodate changes that they should never have had to face..I feel shame.

IMHO, if we don’t stop spending our children’s inheritance and start being better custodians of our own inheritance…now…our generation will forever be remembered with sadness….and disgust.
