Merry Meet All,
Today I was out in my garden, as usual. The spiders, slugs, bees, and mosquitoes visited too. After I kicked out the slugs, and braved the bites, I watched from inside as chickadees visited the feeder and bees sipped pollen from bee balm, astilble, and the sea holly. Two bees this time. There used to be more.
I am concerned about the future of the bees. I hope you all have seen the picture about the 37 million bees dying from GMOs on the blog page. I have strengthened my pledge to eat only organic food. I am so worried that if the food is not organic, I will not eat it. I will finish what I have and that is it. I have organic face wash, toothpaste, even linens. I refuse to cooperate in the unnecessary and cruel deaths of more bees. It breaks my heart to know that our poor unsung heroes are dying by the millions. We are nothing without bees.
Here are some links to learn more about the tragic fate of the bees: http://www.thepost.on.ca/2013/06/19/bees-dying-by-the-millions
Here is another link: http://eatlocalgrown.com/article/11647-this-is-what-your-grocery-store-looks-like-without-bees.html
The honey in the stores is fake- it was not created by bees and removes the need for bees. This link tells you more about it: http://eatlocalgrown.com/article/11638-petition-stop-selling-fake-honey.html
Please read these links to be better informed about how GMO crops and food are killing the bees. Without them, we are nothing. We will not survive. Refuse to buy GMO food. Alternatives to that crap exist. Since consuming more organic food, I feel better. Be careful. Some companies are lying about what is and is not organic.
Tonight, if you celebrate Lammas, or tomorrow, ask yourself if the God and Goddess would be happy knowing that their sacred bees are being murdered. It is murder. It is beemageddon, it is beecide. It is unthinkable and should be unacceptable. Taking a lukewarm, apathetic attitude is not going to save the bees. We need to act bravely and now. A dystopian society is where we are all headed, if we allow it to be so. Monsanto does not care about the bees’ fate. They produce cheap, plastic food that contains no nutrients.
I dread our future. I went to a food bank and when I came home, I had lots of houseflies in the house. I smudged the house with sage, donated the processed food back to the food bank, and they are gone. It was the negative energy they are attracted to. Please act and make conscious decisions on what you purchase from the stores. The bees will thank you.
