Have you decided whom you want to Witness your success life?

Do we need Him a witness? 

I raised an army and defeated people, entered cities, slaughtered, hanged, maimed, terrified, and ruled; I need a God to witness my deeds.

I split the atom, generated nuclear energy, searched the stars, and landed on planets; I need a God to witness my intelligence and perseverance.

I joined the resistance against occupiers and was ready to fall a martyr and I need a God to witness that I was steadfast in my dignity.

I am living in a desolate region; I am dying of thirst, famine, and curable diseases; I need a God to witness my suffering.

I am an aristocrat and I inherited a fortune; I need a God to witness my self-sufficiency.

I am an ascetic; I joined a sect that provides me with food and cares for my health; I need a God to witness the hard life that I consecrated to meditation and repeating his 99 names.

I was lucky to live long enough and ask “why I got to exist”.

I was lucky to survive long enough through hazardous risks and dangers while others were not born, stillborn dead, died prematurely, and died too young to worry about death. I need a God to witness that I am thankful

I was lucky to care for imminent departures, dare look death in the eyes, converse with the universe, search for a point of application to move part of the world, to change, to redirect interests…

I was lucky to gain new relationships, to find the courage to confess, to confide bottled up emotions, verbalize uneasiness, to express frustrations clearly,

I was lucky to see nature grow, witness the existence of other living forms, to hang on to my garden, to get cozy in my quarter of solitude, to appreciate my rights as an individual and fight for them, and to get convinced that diversity is good and necessary.

I need a God to witness that I did my best to value exotic tendencies, conformist attitudes, conservative behaviors, revolutionary zeal, simple pleasures, a walk in nature, creating a void around me, and inviting boisterous neighbors.

I need a God to witness that I laughed at my limitations, allowed others to make fun of my idiosyncrasies, and showed off my capabilities.

I need a God to witness that I discovered new cultures, customs, and traditions;

That I started collecting artifacts, relics, manuscripts of dying civilizations;

That I battled for species on the verge of extinction, minority and ethnic races swept aside by globalization;

That I have gone to war for clean air and fresh potable water;

That I demonstrated for parcels of wild prairies and virgin forests.

I don’t need a Creator, all Compassionate, all Vengeful, all Knowledge; it is irrelevant.

I am good, evil, mean, cruel, benevolent, and respectful; who I am is also irrelevant.

When all is said and done I need a God who never dies and remembers everything.

I need a God to witness that I was a survivor;

That once upon a time I did exist.

Earth Day? Doing what in those celebrations? What are your priorities?

April 22 is back again. This Sunday will be observed by over 1 billion people to participate in Earth Day activities. Is it the largest civic observance in the world according to Earth Day Network?

Where would you like to start from? I have the impression that my list will have no end to it, enumerating the ailments that mother earth is suffering from, particularly, how mankind is coping in this desolate landscape and reduced imagination and pragmatic resolutions to world problems.

Never mind how the animal species are fairing:

If mankind maintained intact the environment of the animal kingdom, animals are well adapted than us to survive and thrive…

What could be your priority of promoting in Earth Day?

1. Working toward clean and fresh potable water?

2. Demonstrating and struggling for dear clean and healthy air?

3. Confronting nuclear waste disposal systems, chemical waste, toxic rare dirt exploitation…? (See note 3)

4. Cleaning beaches from frequent and abundant oil spills?

5. Stopping massive deforestation for the agro-industries that mankind never get a share in it?

Five years ago, my niece Joanna and future husband Yuhanna donned white overhaul to clean up the beaches in Lebanon that were polluted by oil spills generated by the bombing of Israel to our refineries by the coast in 2006. Why the overhaul had to be white? Is it supposed to be a once wear before being discarded, so that thousands of workers in the garment industry in China, Cambodia, Bangladesh, Viet Nam, and India faint en mass? (See note 2)

The UN demanded from Israel reparations, but Israel considers all UN resolutions as not of its concerns. The US didn’t exert any pressures on Israel, as usual. And the pseudo-State in Lebanon is not following up on this issue…

During our long civil war, Italy and other European States dumped hundreds of containers containing toxic materials and paid the militia leader “overseeing” the Jubail district.  The government knows the location, but refuses to touch and approach the matter.

Two years ago, the government bought two jets for “sprinkling” man-made “wild fires”. The machines are not functional: Well, they were not been put to any use yet. Wild fires are politically supported to manufacture charcoal in the cheapest way.

There are many politically backed families that operate illegal carries. One family saw its business stopped by one government. The next government awarded $400 million for damages and permitted the family to resume operations. Go figure.  Shall I go on?

I haven’t checked any of these blogs yet. I have no idea when I’ll start finding the credible and valued blogs.  Would you forward other links from outside the US, even written in French or Arabic?

How do you celebrate Earth Day? Picnic for the Planet, or plant a tree?
