If a waning moon is still a moon then we were children. We were also wet and nearly naked, half-hidden in the dark, hoping our drunk parents would remain dumb. Our probing tongues made easy promises that tasted like truth with a dash of delusion. But now the moon is new and we are Facebook friends. We share our virtual lives; celebrate our virtual victories while still hiding in the dark. Luvgood Carp, Editor-in-Chief first published in Artemis
I’ve been around nearly as long as life, and I’ve seen it all. Which, at times, makes it difficult to say something original. But that’s o.k., because I’ve noticed humans crave the usual. You prefer slogans.
So here are my slogans:
Be kind when you can. Don't be cruel - ever. Get involved, but not if you are going to violate the first two slogans.
If you want to make your community/world (is there a difference?) a better place, you don’t have to go it alone. There are billions of you humans. I am sure some of them may be willing to help. So make allies.
As my good friend, Luna, says:
If you are going to turn the tide perhaps it would be best to have the moon on your side. See you soon. Raven Breathless (fka Death), Senior Human Rights Correspondent
