Month: September 2010

Ric O’Barry, OPS, And All Collaborators of, The Cove, Bring Transparency

I watched  The Cove documentary  last Thursday night ,  for those of you that watch Whale Wars, this film just adds tremendous insight to the bureaucracy Japan  and other countries have  over  the IWC.   We need to stop exploiting animals and mammals.  Any animal that is caught and taken out of its natural habitat is going to suffer.  Think about the zoos and the water parks that hold these animals captive.  It is time to look at the bigger picture and to require justice and a better life for all.   We do not need an hour of  entertainment this bad, at this cost.

This is the month for slaughtering until March.. …..

Most people feel there are bigger fish to fry than saving Dolphins, but it is all relevant.   The Dolphins just represent a mirror to the many monstrosities that happen  in making a buck.  The “out of sight out of mind “concept does not work.  We need to rethink accountability and the depths of  exploitation.  Supply and Demand, there is all kinds of negative, consequential , destructive commerce that exists because we buy it.

To Bethany Storro, And The Many Burn Victims Across The Globe

Stay strong!  Our anatomy is an amazing self healing phenomenon.  My father suffered a fire burn.  I look at my dad and its bothersome to see some layer of  charred skin.  For individuals that end up in an unfortunate burn  accident or that some devil spun human deliberately throws acid or sets a human being on fire, is simply incomprehensible.  I by no means am saying one is lesser of the two horrible s, the end result is still managing the burn, based on the level of  injury.

The 3rd Burn Incident I have Experienced

When I resided in Ca I was cooking something on the stove.  There was a  pot with a lid, some how I tilted the lid and from the steam I ended up burning the top of my right ring finger.  It was painful, so I can not imagine fire burns, chemical burns etc…covering  a bigger and deeper skin area.

A couple of months ago my nephew Landon(2 years old) burnt his hands on the motor of a riding law mower, he ended up with a  2nd degreeburn.  Thankfully,  it did not do any permanent damage.  I was present the day it happened and it is a day I will never forget, his cry of pain.  He has since recovered beautifully.

On Saturday, Sep. 4th, I got a phone call that my father was in the emergency , that he had burnt himself.  My father (mid 60’s)also suffered a 2nd degree fire burn.  The area affected is his right side of his face, neck and shoulder.  My father is no spring chicken,  let us see the time it will take to heal his skin.

I have a friend who says there is a new gel on the market for treating burns, if you have been a victim of a burn or you have had experience cleaning and treating burns, I would love to hear from you.
