I was thinking about darkangel's post on the cutting down of trees for Christmas...

http://www.democraticunderground.com/1018244543

And these thoughts came to my mind:

I understand what she's saying about what a waste to cut a tree down just so we can decorate it for a short time, and then discard it. It does seem wasteful.

But we waste far more on food we throw away because it's spoiled or some such. And the food was grown to be eaten.


The Christmas tree does nourish us...not our bodies, but our souls and minds. It brings a bit of magic to us.

We have them in our homes, and we see them in various venues where we go, and they are beautiful, magical. They can lift our spirits. They can inspire us, because beauty does that.

Children see them and they see the magic too. It can help them see our world as a place that can be lovely, and that can help them grow spiritually or emotionally...

Their beauty is brief but it endures inside us. It can lift us out of our ordinary lives. And who doesn't need that?


Peace out...

I yelled at my parents tonight...

They had called to wish me a happy birthday, and we had a very pleasant chat...

Until somehow we found ourselves talking about fracking. And the Keystone Pipeline.


Now, they were Republicans for all the years I was growing up, and beyond...But about oh maybe 8-10 years ago, they re-registered as Democrats. They have been faithfully voting for Democrats for some time now. I could not be any more pleased!

But I guess some of their attitudes are still Republican.

And that's why I yelled at them.


So. I need good, solid references to show them the error of their ways, and I hope that you good people can help me out. They need facts.


I hope you can help.
