A Show Worth Watching.

December 3, 2015

extinction     Racing Extinction ”  a documentary filmmaker Louie Psihoyos and others look at mankind’s role in a potential loss of at least half of the world’s species. 

     The show presented the beautiful sights and sounds of our environment.  Such wonders are always magical for me and leave me with feelings of awe, amazement and longing to immerse myself in this wonderment.

     In the documentary it is asked is anyone still listening?  Then let us listen to a variety of the sounds of our environment and wildlife.

dead coral….. life comes from the ocean and with a dead silent ocean would follow a dead silent world.

    Maybe we should listen while we still can and ask “Will I help heal and save or hurt and destroy the world?”
