I normally don’t blog about this, but I really feel concerned about it. This is not a sponsored blog post, I decided to blog about this when I saw a post from a Facebook User: Kevin and was shared by my cousin so it reached my account. I really feel alarmed and decided to get more petitions from them. Here is the content of the post.
I hope that this image travels the world . . .
“While newspapers and television talk about the lives of celebrities, the chief of the Kayapo tribe received the worst news of his life: Dilma, “The new president of Brazil, has given approval to build a huge hydroelectric plant (the third largest in the world). It is the death sentence for all the people near the river because the dam will flood 400,000 hectares of forest. More than 40,000 Natives will have to find another place to live. The natural habitat destruction, deforestation and the disappearance of many species is a fact.”What moves me in my very bowels , making me ashamed of being part of Western culture, is the reaction of the chief of the Kayapo community when he learned of the decision—his gesture of dignity and helplessness before the advance of capitalist progress, modern predatory civilization that does not respect the differences . . .But we know that a picture is worth a thousand words, showing the reality of the true price of our bourgeois “quality of life”.Not only is this a picture of one man crying; It symbolizes the grief that has been forced upon an entire people.Sign the AVAAZ Petition to stop the dam here: http://www.avaaz.org/en/amazon_under_threat/Here is the link to “Earth. We are one.” Official Facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/pages/Earth-We-are-one/149658285050501It’s time to wake up.
I really want to help this people from some selfish people like them. I can’t give you rewards for signing the petition but someone from above will surely reward you. It only takes one click. Please do sign the petition! :googlyeyes:
“You may have much gold and grandeur, Yet by God be reckoned poor; He alone has riches truly Who has Christ, though nothing more.” – Anon.
I still believe that everyone needs God in their life. :40: Not only the poor, but also those who are rich. :13: Today’s entry deals with riches and having God in your life. There are a lot of stories of rich people yet unhappy. :69: And I also heard of the reason was that they don’t have God in their life. So, what difference does really God makes? Apostle Paul said that when we give God control of our lives, earthly blessings can be enjoyed, for He “gives us richly all things to enjoy.” ( 1 Timothy 6:17) (Our Daily Bread 2012) :51: It may not be in a form of money, gold,or anything material, but it can be more than that, better than that, it can be “love” you can feel better more than the rich people, :money: you can feel rich with love. :71:
“To be rich in God is better than to be rich in goods.” (Our Daily Bread 2012) :givelove:
“Immortal, invisible, God only wise, In light inaccessible hid from our eyes, Most blessed, most glorious, the Ancient of Days, Almighty, victorious – Thy great name we praise.” – Smith
How do we define great? :100: Great is beyond ordinary, the best. That’s how I define it. :121: By the definition that I used we can simply say that there a lot of people whomw e can call great. :71: Great at dancing, painting, writing ans so on. :93: But bear in mind, “Only God is great.” :99: We recognize and admire some of our fellow mortals who are considered to be great thinkers, great scientists, great inventors, great achievers in every field of endeavor. In many ways they tower above all of us ordinary people, but they still have the same needs we do. They experience aches and pains. They have troubled minds and hungry hearts, They cannot stave off death nor guarantee life beyond grave. :oh: (Our Daily Bread 2012) If they are so great, why did they die? Why do they feel pain? Why do they feel alone or lonely sometimes? Why do they sin? And most of all, why do they feel it’s hard to forgive other people? :argh: In short, they are just like us, only that they excel at something. They just did better at something compared to us. At some point, they are number one but they are not great like God. :82: “Only God is great.” :69: He is great enough to meet all our needs, great enough to forgive all our sins, and great enough to carry us through the dark valley of death into eternity, to be with Him forever. So we declare with the psalmist, “You are great.. You alone are God.” (Psalm 86:10) – Vernon Grounds (Our Daily Bread 2012) :yipee:
“In the world of empty superlatives, God is the greatest.” (Our Daily Bread 2012)
