Heroes are not heroes for no reason. They are that kind of person. They are heroic. Heroes in stories often die. Sometimes, they have to. That is the way of heroism. Since you, too, have to die at some point in the future, why not a die a hero? It is an honourable death. It takes some doing to get your actions registered as heroic. That means it is not a walk in the park being a hero. It is a very serious calling and those that decide to become heroes in life – or death – should be acknowledged with our gratitude. A hero has focus, vision, to see a mission through and deliver reached goals with maximum efficiency.
There are many heroes walking the face of the Earth. Theirs’ is a legacy that speaks for itself. When you save something or put your life on the line for a cause in which you believe and you do so with a fierce passion for what you represent, you begin to understand what heroes did historically – what they still do – and why they do it. A hero is a person who helps others, a person that understands loyalty. That is why their value. They are resourceful, enterprising. They are very good at what they do. Heroes are still required and it is just as well that they do exist. This world has not been saved yet.
It is time to stop avenging the deaths of former ‘heroes’. There are too many men chasing each other around brandishing death because of dead heroes. What is the point of that? You do not teach your son that he must kill his neighbour because the boy’s grandfather killed yours. That is stupid thinking. The business of vendettas is a big business, understandably, there is a firm principle behind an eye for an eye, but there are ways to do the things you must do to balance the scales of justice without compromising your soul. It is important to know this.
Caring is a particularly beautiful human trait. It is a way of being, a mode of conduct. Those who care in this world will find that their days are made great by virtue of their efforts. The days of others are made special because of their efforts, too, and that is important. It is your job as a human being to make a difference to the lives of other sentient beings – you cannot escape that reality.
Failing to care brings with it grave consequence. That of meaninglessness. When you do not care, nothing has meaning, and when nothing in your life has meaning your existence is pointless. Yes – the meaning of life is a vital component in each of our everydays and it makes sense to care about what your life means – to yourself, and to others. You are alive – you are meant to live and you are meant to give that living, meaning.
Care builds powerhouses out of communities. When people care, they pull together. Unity is the cornerstone of progress and since progress – global progress, i.e. a world made better for everyone – is where Earth is headed, care and unity really should be at the top of everyone’s agenda. Those who refuse to care for the well-being of this planet and its inhabitants, its Natural legacy, will find their heads empty and their hearts heavy with dread when the time comes for them to leave this Earth. You do not want to be leaving this Earth with an empty head and a feeling of dread. My suggestion – please give a shit. It might just save what’s left of your lives.
Oops, Japan. Big, big oops. I think it would be safe to say that the Japanese and the Chinese are doing an exceptional job of fucking up the planet for the rest of us. How is Japan going to compensate for killing the Pacific? About 400 tons of poisonous water is leaking into the ocean every single day. Who is going to be held accountable here? Someone better had be held accountable. It is HUMAN error that built a reactor next to a tsunami. Who is Japan to cry about a tsunami washing it away? Nature will do her business and she will make her statements and she will not ever be answerable to man. Ever. He should mind his own business of raping her every facility and realise that the more he infringes on her territory, the more she will protest his presence on her planet. Her animals – every single one of them – is held captive in one way or another, under human control. She accepts that in a world this small, that must be the case. What she does not accept is the way a lot of these animals are forced to live and die.
A handful of people died as a result of the Fukushima disaster. Five, I think. Five human beings for the Pacific? No. I don’t think so. That is a very serious imbalance. Nature likes the scales to be balanced. Please understand that, if you understand nothing else. She will work at equilibrium until she has it perfected and whichever way that goes for the humans is the way it goes. Do not make the mistake of thinking that she feels sad about the plight of the humans. She does not. She is intrigued, perhaps. Disappointed. That is all. Nature is more concerned about sharing her legacy with a future she can anticipate than she is mankind’s eventual extinction. She has the ears of the gods and for now, she shares that legacy with them. Nature still has so many secrets to tell you about yourselves. Don’t kill her.
Fukushima adds to the extensive debt Japan already owes Nature. When they have killed their connection to her entirely, and their very small country becomes uninhabitable – because it will – where, then, will they live? Where will the Chinese live when their pollution and their demons chase them out of the cities, themselves? I think the Japanese and the Chinese will find out then that the rest of the countries on this planet are full-up. They will not be welcome, anywhere. Sorry, the world will say, no space for people like you. It is coming to that.
