|A terrible death many of these animals are facing right now as we go about our business as usual. Imagine a Polar Bear just swimming miles in open water trying to find his ice and then drowning. And some like the Wolves the government is waging an extermination campaign against (shooting from the air!) So when the day of this Dying World finally hits home and we and our children are now paying with Famine and disease, many will scream the loudest, when it is too late. Now is the time to do something, because nobody (not even us) can live in a dying world for long!|

|To us as writers and poets this poem is one big shout to make the world a better place but to the lords of greed, this is a bomb exploding right in the middle of their guilty hearts. Thanks dear Ed. for your endless effort to call for the protection of environment.|
|Reviewed by Kate Burnside
|... Think I'll just go climb into the body bag that's got my name on it waiting in some governmental bunker somewhere... taking all the animals I can with me at the same time. Hopefully, when the bomb drops, we will all be blasted onto some New Earth to start again... Well, I can dream, can't I...?? Seems like that will be all that's soon left to do... Unless YOU become President... now THAT'S an idea... Never give up, Ed... Hope is what keeps the fires of proactivity alive. And God save the bees or else we're done for... Perhaps you could write the blockbusting novel that will sweep the world as a number one best-seller and donate the proceeds appropriately...|

|I read yesterday about the Polar Bears Ed..a deep somberness pervaded my whole day.....With 9-11 just two days away, I realized, although sad, we are still making more people,
but who will make more Polar Bears?

I pray all will wake up before its too late ! If everone would do just a little something each day to help , it would make a difference!..... Keep Writing!!!! M|

|It is a sad state to say the very least, Ed. We all give lip service to caring about the environment, but that goes about as far as the first minor inconvenience, then we are back on the fast track once again. We continue to drive cars, instead of riding a bicycle for close treks or even a scooter...100 MPG not a bad deal...but we are used to our comfortable cars, too warm houses in winter, washing machines and dryers, our dishwashers and televisions, nevermind our computers. We work harder instead of smarter and we waste everything. Most of us have no idea how to take care of themselves should disaster strike. There is much to feel bad about, but I don't see change coming, especially when that change must come from each of us.

|The last time Michele and me went to Utah we were shocked to see thousands of acres of forest dead. Not one living tree in big splotches. The forest rangers we spoke with said it was the worst they had ever seen or read about. Seems we (humanity and this planet) are on the fast track to global changes that will defy category and logic.
We are truly reaping what we have sown.

|In the modern world apathy is the silent killer of beautiful nature. I am sickened by it all. My hope is that you and the other's who honors are just keep bonding one to each new enlistee for help. Regeneration is the next generation I pray!

|I agree with all the reviews and cannot say anymore than Kimmy Van K has offered and I believe it to be so true.

|That is very sad indeed. I can not believe that polar bears are not on the endangered species list. I can not believe that hardly anyone cares. Well I know that I care and that my friends care. I am going to spread the word as far as i can and see to it that more people care.|

|We're on the same page, Ed. Being in the trenches every day in wildlife rescue and rehab can surely brings tears. I'm just one person in one little place. The greedy, insensitve, selfish human types got us into this mess so deep that it will take many caring and action oriented people to dig us out. That means turning that nasty ratio of "for every person who cares -- there are ten who don't" around. We're all in trouble -- plants, animals, trees, us. And I'm tired~!~~ Guess I should have written a comment tomorrow after I've rested and am ready to get back out there again. But -- opps, there it is! Keep doing what you do, Ed, to keep everyone aware. We can only hope they jump on the "green E bus."|

|You have penned so eloquently and with such passion that which I sadly am so very aware. Wish more would take an interest, but the new God "Almighty Dollar" seems to be ruling in this world today.

|I could not agree more with these sentiments. I am not optimistic that humankind will react soon enought to reverse the killing of the earth. The point of no return is only a few years away.|

I'd written a paper in college about garbage, went back and read it. Then thought I'd post it as a blog "Garbage" Cause you don't want to get me going and filling pages as a review.

|You made me cry with this one, Ed. Kimmers is right on. Pain hurts. Somehow we must make the powers-that-be stop their wanton destruction of our world. I do not like to be crying. It makes me angry. I want to fight and utterly destroy the greed which is tearing our wonderful world apart.

|The music sounds like a funeral parlor processional and I see these voiceless extinctions following, one by one...and being voiceless, makes it all that much more difficult to watch, because we know who leads them here. . .Sad, downright sad.
Mr. Ed, you and I, and many others have done our good for life and mankind, and to prolong the species, no matter whose species, even our own, to live on, is to become, now, down to a survival of the fittest.
She's on the downhill , so now, how do we slow her down?
Anything we do, anything. . .toward the answers to these millions of questions must be found, and each and every human must ignite each and every other to join in and fight for those who cannot. . .yes, even the animals! Fat chance, huh?
But! If we think that way, we are striking our own match and burning it all to hell right now! We must have hope, we must trust there is another plan. . .and we must be fervent in our cause to keep this earth as God gave it. If someone gave you a gift, would you destroy it? That's what it comes down to!
Mr. Ed, in my eyes, your poems are an inspiration to get the word around! You have my utmost respect when it comes to how you have, and will always take care of her.Your soul aches in your writes on this.
Love and Peace~
