|I hadn't seen this when I began to write yesterday. When I was in Bangkok in 1977, the steets were full of trucks of teak from the north. I'm so glad they stopped that insanity. Brazil is another matter.

|When we visited Yellowstone it had just been devastated by the fire. I cried and begged my husband to LEAVE; the park was in mourning. The smell, the nakedness, the stark contrast and lack of shelter had chased the animals away. It was heartbreaking!
Men are raping earth for riches; only men can stop it!

|I remember trees ... once. Isn't that sad, how mankind's greed has broken Mother's back? Her spine's collapsing, and no one gives a rip. Excellent expression, Susan, I fear it's too late ...
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

|You and I seem to be on the same sad page today, Susan. I'm posting a poem this morning about the very same tragedy after reading that latest State of the Forest Report.
If only millions more cared, we might be able to make a difference. But these very sad days, it almost seems like it's already too late - far too much apathy, callousness, and profit driven greed in our world today.

|Your words sound the alarm! We are a shameful bunch; full of greed and ego to the point of not believing in our own future. With your voice and others, growing, perhaps, we can be a force to force all the dumb bastards in the US and the world to hear the warning!
A danged goodun'! - Bill

|Such a profound piece of writing Susan, Our Earth is the Mother of us all, We have taken so much from her, now it's time to give back, no-one can ignore this. We must save the Earth whatever it takes in order for ourselves and our children and our Grandchildren to go on living, These are critical times, This is a pivotal point in the existence of us all. We all must try to stop the abuse of Mother Earth. If I could I would broadcast this poem to every network in the world and translate it to every language. This is the most important issue of our time.

|Susan outstanding , one of your best! We need the rain forests they are the lungs of the earth without them the earth dies! Your poem should be read in the press and media so leaders can know we are aware of their neglect. Especially when they want our votes!Thank you for this splendid work!

|A beautiful poem! We have done so much damage and yes we do need to do something. It's unfortunate that the oil companies have so much power in government since they are a major contributor to damage. I whole heartedly agree with you on this one.
Stay southern and keep writing.

|You pen this plight in a way that makes it easy for all to understand. Sadly, in the name of commerce and growth - we are loosing that which truly sustains our life. I, like you, hope that this 'rape' will be ended while we still have a beautiful Rain Forest.
God bless you. Kathy
