This fragile earth, our Island home

I love Eucharistic Prayer C in the Episcopal Prayer Book.

Some of my friends call it the 'Star Wars Prayer" but that's what I love about it.

Here's the Star Wars part:
     At your command, all things came to be: the vast expanse of interstellar
     space, galaxies, suns, the planets in their courses,
      and this fragile earth, our island home.

Beautiful, I think.

Ukraine is what may move the lever on our President, but I would impeach him for all he's done to undo the protection of "this fragile earth, our island home".

We live on an island that is the earth. There is nowhere else to go.

He withdrew America from the Paris Environmental Accord.

He told California they could not demand better gas mileage, even though the car manufacturers said they didn't mind.

He took regulations off of coal power plants.

He allowed gas and oil drilling on public lands.

He denies Climate Science.

He wants to further damage this fragile earth, our island home.

He cares nothing for the planet his and MY grandchildren will live on.

I hope he goes. And I hope the Democrat who wins in 2020 will not only reinstate the regulations this President has eliminated, but fight for 'The Green New Deal'.

Otherwise, this fragile earth is doomed.


We can't allow that. I have granddaughters who will be grandmothers some day. It is their grandchildren we must protect and save.

No matter what it takes.

No matter what it takes.....
