A Truth IgnoredOne night I dreamed I was an eagleI could see the whole worldand hear a whole nationand below me a man on TVspoke to all his viewers."Don't listen to what they say.There is no problem."While I look around and see that it is not true.Around this man ice mltsdroughts killand floods rage through cities.tornadoes pick you up and throw you who-knows-whereand hurricanes tear you apart.around this man,people are dying.They look up to the heavensand say,"Please, someome help me."And I look down at this manthis cold, hard, television man,and I know that he is lying.Our world, where all battles were won,all countries founded,all discoveries made,all children born, is falling apart.Our world is dying.And we are doing nothing to stop it.
