As you all know, I love the music I grew up with in the 60s and 70s — especially the ones of peace and love and tolerance of difference…
Three Dog Night was a favorite of mine and very popular. Family of Man was a song of the times and the struggles of those decades. I think it’s hard for the younger generation to understand that they were not just about sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll, but there was a genuine grasping for peace and love of each other (platonic love that did not engage the 2nd chakra).
Martin Luther King, Jr., and John F. Kennedy were two leaders also trying for that. It was after JFK spoke about peace and changing his mind towards peace that he was murdered. That era was often referred to as Camelot. And if you don’t know what Camelot referred to, it was King Arthur and his viewing everyone as being equal, as he had a round table so that no one could use the position of power — the head of the table –as a means to shut up the others.
MLK was also taken out, I believe, for his stance on the Vietnam war and the poor. He felt so alone in the last days of his life because of his standing against the war and speaking up for the poor.
So the song Family of Man resonated with those struggles.
Here is the song:
Here’s an informative video on the die off of precious salmon that feeds so many and gives us such wonderful medicine: omega that heals the brain.

The First Nations folks hold salmon in high esteem. Prior to we Europeans, they fished responsibly and managed the fisheries and ecosystem with a proactive viewpoint.
…and it’s only taken we Europeans a few hundred years to destroy what they sustainably raised for over 10,000 years!
The denial in the video is mindblowing. They just don’t die without cause! And it always comes down to money. Shortsighted if you see the long term effects of this stupid denial. This is probably one of the reasons they are trying to genetically modify God’s design…with disastrous consequences.
When I listened to what they are saying the cause is at the beginning, my mind leaped to Lyme and the many causes of people becoming sick. It parallels what they are saying: a destroyed immune system and retrovirus…just like what they are putting into vaccines!!
The narrator makes a comment that she wonders if they are actively trying to kill off the wild salmon (so that the commercial fisheries can force people to buy their diseased product)…and I wondered the same thing before she even voiced it.
I am seeing such evil in the world now that those feeding the Darkness would have no qualms about killing off a species for their own benefit.
I love that she shows how to tell good wild salmon from fatty farm-raised (and probably diseased) salmon–good to know.
I am happy that there are others who are seeing this happening and are taking charge. I love that they are taking back their power and not allowing the corrupt politicians call the tune anymore. Good for them.
This is one of the saddest blogs I have ever read. Sad because EVERY child in my class knew what tree acorns grew on. Our teachers had fall decorations with leaves and squirrels and acorns stapled to the seasonal decorations board. Nature was not ignored. Nature was not portrayed as evil or a nuisance as it is today.
Acorns come from oak trees. And you can eat them, too.
The new weapon of our age: using electro-magnetic waves (EMF) to harm people. Keep this in mind whenever someone poo-poos the harm that EMF’s do to people. They are harmful and now we have American diplomats whom have been made ill.
The question is…WHOM is trying to harm them? It would be hard to track down the source, imo.
Reposting this. It seems like a lifetime ago…like a fairy tale story…but it’s not a happy ending.
Did you folks hear about Energy Transfer Partners using Blackwater-like outfit called TigerSwan to violently stop the protests and dig up burial grounds? Now I hope those who doubted what the protestors were saying now believe them. I was stunned by the police and sheriff deputies in riot gear.
There was no riot. There was no riot. There was no riot.
I hope that folks think about their precious water every time they open up the spigot. Sadly, I don’t think they will until it no longer comes out or they get oil or fracking gas instead of life giving water. Three days without water is all it takes for your body to shut down.
In Indiana, with 15 million pounds of toxins spewed into the rivers every year, the Wabash and Erie have been poisoned. Officials have even warned folks not to eat fish from the Wabash, it is that bad. And the Wabash is a major river that gave life to many…
And they were allowed to poison it at the expense of the future life: people, fish, cranes/eagles/turtles, creepy-crawlies, and the plants.
This is what DAPL was all about. To prevent future Wabash and Ohio Rivers…
When I first saw the National Geographic photo of a porcupine standing up, quills fully flexed, in front of a lion, I thought that the porcupine had successfully fought off the lion. I was sad later to find out that was not the case and the porcupine was dinner.
Then I came across this story recently of a porcupine being yet another meal for a python. They try to state that the porcupine was not the cause of the python’s demise, but later in the story, they say that the python tried to regurgitate and the quills caused its demise.
They said that porcupines are on the menu of pythons so it could not have been the cause.
Porcupine does not go down without a fight…so it shoots quills into the python.
Python realizes it tangled with the wrrrroooonnng porcupine and tries to regurgitate the little fighter.
Big Mistake. You lose.
I just admire the porcupine so much. They are a small, gentle creature, but man, they don’t back down. They fight to the end.
With that said, I found this while looking for the lion photo (hat tip to Huffington Post):
Ed McGaa has passed over to the other side. May he be at peace.
