My wife and I recently spent a few glorious days bouldering and hiking around Joshua Tree National Park. Experiencing the vastness of our planet, the sacred and profane energetic force of earth, spirit, environment while recognizing how small we are feeds my soul, blows up my creativity and connects me to what is essential in this moment and in my life.
While lying on the rocks and feeling awe struck by everything around me, I wondered aloud if Trump and his Klan of greed mongers had ever spent time in a National Park. His desire to mine nature for monetary reward and his and Pence's selection of Scott Pruitt for EPA and Ryan Zinke for the Interior, made me wonder if perhaps they have never felt the holy awesome of the natural world.
Trump signed an Executive Order to "review" 27 national monuments. Trump in all his huge ignorance wants to destroy our national treasures and ONLY WE CAN STOP THEM.
Zinke, a Montanan, should know better than to declassify our national monuments and to drill or deforest and develop our national parks. And yet, he is just following orders. Another foot solider from hell.
There remain so many actions to take daily - fighting for healthcare, stopping the sickening budget proposal, knowing the facts about the plan to defund public education, and today we focus on our mother earth. Still CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVES about all just mentioned (seriously, you should have their numbers in your speed dial by now), please take a moment to let the Department of the Interior know your thoughts about our national monuments, aka our National Treasures.
