Response to angstlessk (Reply #9)

Sat Mar 26, 2016, 03:34 AM

49. Very beautiful. Yet that's the parental fear

that Make3cats' wrote about. That's the essence of my sadness, as a mother, over the coming sixth extinction.

It's ALL going to end ...too soon and with suffering. The roaches will survive, they always do, and perhaps a few small animals and a few sea critters.

I struggle daily with this knowledge. I too have faced my mortality, with horrible fear and deep depression at first. But then I gained courage that astonished my hubs. I've held on to that courage until the last few years. Knowledge can be brutal but I prefer knowing than sticking my head in the sand and making the situation worse for younger generations. The sand heads are cowards who are contributing the most to the problem. I suppose I agree with Bertrand Russell.
