If the Earth were only a few feet in diameter......

If the Earth
were only a few feet in diameter,
floating a few feet above a field somewhere,
people would come from everywhere to marvel
at it. People would walk around it marveling at its
big pools of water, its little pools and the water flowing
between. People would marvel at the bumps on it and the
holes in it. They would marvel at the very thin layer of gas
surrounding it and the water suspended in the gas. The people
would marvel at all the creatures walking around the surface of
the ball and at the creatures in the water. The people would
declare it as sacred because it was the only one, and they would
protect it so that it would not be hurt. The ball would be the
greatest wonder known, and people would come to pray to
it, to be healed, to gain knowledge, to know beauty and
to wonder how it could be. People would love it, and
defend it with their lives because they would
somehow know that their lives could be
nothing without it. If the Earth were
only a few feet in

If the Earth were only a few feet in diameter ... I found this long ago, love it, and have always wondered who wrote it ... finally, after long last, here it is! It is AWESOME. Thank you for finding it and putting it on your blog so it could be found by me! :) This message needs to be seen by EVERYONE - Mother Earth is unique and our HOME. She is our everything and she is in trouble. We must wake up, get active, protect her now!
