Happy Interdependence Day

INDEPENDENCE
Is but a pipe dream…
A figment of
Mankind’s imagination.
One way or another,
All living things are
INTERDEPENDENT.
Rather than proclaiming
Our superiority & separateness,
Perhaps we should instead
Set our arrogance aside…
Putting our intellect to work to
Unravel the marvelous mysteries
Of the intricate connections
Within the natural world…
Subsequently, applying
That understanding
To the fullest extent
For the shared benefit of
ALL.
