Butterfly Wishes

Yesterday a butterfly
Came floating gently through the sky.
He soared up through the atmosphere
Then drifted close enough to hear.

I said, "I'd love to fly with you
And sail around the way you do.
It looks like it would be such fun
To fly up toward the summer sun.

But I have not your graceful charm.
I haven't wings, just these two arms.
I've been designed to walk around.
My human feet must touch the ground.

Then magically he spoke to me
and told me what his wish would be.

He said, "What I'd love most to do
Is walk upon God's Earth with you,
To squish it's mud between my toes
Or touch my finger to my nose.

I'd love just once to walk around
With human feet to touch the ground,
But I have not two legs that swing,
I haven't arms, just these two wings."

And so we went our separate ways
In wonder and surprise.
For we'd both seen God's precious gifts
Through someone else's eyes.

'Warning to Humanity': Stop Killing Insects Now Before It's Too Late, Say Scientists


Half of the 1 million animal and plant species on Earth facing extinction are insects, and their disappearance could be catastrophic for humankind.

A sharp drop in bird numbers across Europe and the United States has been linked to the collapse of insect populations decimated by pesticide use.

US-Regierung: soll Backdoors für Strafverfolger zur Spionage nutzen
(heise 12.02.20 10:31 Uhr)

Wenn, dann haben sie gut aufgepaßt, als sie die Schulbank bei der NSA, BND und auch Israel drückten, als diese nicht nur bei US-Außenminister John Kerry lauschten (so verlautbare Meldungen).

Wenn zwei das Gleiche tun... C'est la vie.
