World Oceans Day

Today is World Oceans Day. Life is somewhat like the ocean. It can be calm or tranquil and rough or severe. But in the end…it is always beautiful.

We are like the ocean, or should I say, we should be like the ocean. Beautiful on the surface but deep down, there is even greater beauty that most of us never see.

The following script was narrator by Harrison Ford and entitles “THE OCEAN”. Simply Deep.

I am the ocean. I’m water. I’m most of this planet. I shaped it. Every stream, every cloud and every raindrop. It all comes back to me. One way or another, every living thing here needs me. I’m the source. I’m what they crawled out of. Humans are no different. I don’t owe them a thing. I give, they take. But I can always take back. That’s just the way it’s always been. It’s not their planet anyway. Never was. Never will be. But humans, they take more than their share. They poison me, then they expect me to feed them. Well, it doesn’t work that way. If humans want to exist in nature with me, and off of me, I suggest they listen close. I’m only going to say this once. If nature isn’t kept healthy, humans won’t survive. Simple as that. Me, I could give a damn with or without humans, I’m the ocean. I covered this entire planet once, and I can always cover it again. That’s all I have to say.
