Polar Bears and Sea Horses

BA83F930-21BB-4FCC-B020-DA8AAA7D2117“But the polar ice caps are melting,” Alex said. “We need to do something to save those poor, starving polar bears, Dad.”

“I don’t know what we can do,” Dan said, “other than to contact our congressmen and tell them that climate change is real.”

Father and son continued walking along the isolated stretch of beach when Alex felt something cut into the sole of his foot. He removed his sandal and saw the spiky skeleton of a tiny sea horse. He picked up the sea horse’s remains and started to cry.

“Alex, why are you crying?” Dan asked.

“I’m crying for the polar bears and the sea horses and what we’re doing to our home,” he said.

    I remember seeing that picture of the starving polar bear. I felt tears threaten. Yes, we should weep.

    That is a painful and powerful picture, unfortunately some elect to ignore these obvious signs, we need to elect people who understand and see these things!

    Don’t worry people don’t care anymore, not even countries. Don’t be surprised if people ask, polar what?
