Purrs 4 Peace Week 48: There's No PEACE for those smothered under oil

There is a sufficiency in the world for man's need but not for man's greed. ~Mohandas K. Gandhi

Mummy and I can barely watch the news for the sadness that threatens to overcome us with the reports of the oil spill that keeps spilling in the Gulf of Mexico. It now appears that over 5,000 barrels of oil per day is being released into the ocean and threatens hundreds of species of wildlife. It is an environmental disaster of epic proportions that continues increasing. We feel helplessness at the fact there is nothing we can do to stop the horrible damage being done. We feel anger at the corruption, negligence and greed that has led to this catastrophe. We feel grief and the loss of life and suffering of living beings that is now occurring and will be for some time.

We must take action:

  • Let us all demand our public officials take all action to stop leak (employing every public and private resource). It seems to me we’ve committed more assets to protecting the banking industry than we’ve been willing to put behind the rescue of an entire ecosystem and the coastlines of at least 3 states.
  • Let us demand accountability and public prosecution for those responsible.
  • Let us demand a more responsible energy policy that puts the interests of people and animals above corporate profits.

And today................Let us purrr.

Confucius Cat say: GO!

Purrrrr, purrrr, purrrrr, Feel your purrrs as a power swelling within you. The power of healing, safety, protection, control and peace #purrs4peace

Purrrrr, purrrr, purrrrr, purrrrr, purrrr, purrrr, purrrrr, purrrr, purrrrr, purrrr, purrrrr... Purrrrrrrrrrrrr.... See that power targeting the Gulf of Mexico and its coastlines. #purrs4peace

See power of inspiration, knowledge, understanding working in those who have the means to stop this spill.

See the fish, birds, animals, humans in harm’s way protected. See any injured are healed.

Purrrr, purrrrr, purrrr, purrrrr, purrrr, purrrrr, purrrrr, purrrr, purrrr, purr

Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. See the oil spill controlled and halted. Environmental damage contained. Oil and toxins disappear. #purrs4peace.

See responsibility and consideration replace greed and negligence. #purrs4peace

See the interests/health of humans, animals and the environment triumph over the short term profit, political corruption, and corporate selfishness. #purrs4peace

Imagine the clear waters, healthy habitats, thriving coastlines. Imagine the triumph of Peace. #purrs4peace.
