The Children of the Worani by Joshchg The Children of the Worani by Joshchg
These children, the children of the Worani, are the ones who will inherit the loss of their home as the oil wars of the world move to south america. They asked me to tell their story; They have a home. Their home is in the lungs of the world. They live in the forest and the forest is what they take care of. Their land is untainted by the world and it is their only pride. Their government is taking their land as you read this. Their government found oil underneath their land. Their government is tearing up their home, because you and I want their oil. We cannot replace their home, or the land they have cared for for generations. These are the children of the Worani.

Oh, fooey. The only form that globalism has ever taken and will ever take is imperialism. People in power have more influence over this trend than anyone else, which isn't to say that the 99% shouldn't be conscientious about their actions within their own spheres.

wow, that is just sad- It just proves that our dependence on oil has gotten to the point that people are removing what others claim as home :( This will make me think about how I should manage the way I consume oil

Shared this on FB. Hopefully it gets shared in turn and awareness is raised. There is nothing worse than losing your home to greed. Thank you for caring enough to speak for these children.

I wish we didn't use oil. We're destroying everything our ancestors strived for. One day there'll be nothing left of out planet.

it is sad to know this is happening in the world we call home. but it is great when people do whatever they can to get the word out. awareness is the best start to fighting these cruelties.

So much destruction, tragedy and sadness to squeeze a few more dollars and a few more years out of oil and gas :( Thanks a lot for sharing and congratulations on the DD :hug:

On a side note, though: The oceans, or more precisely the photosynthetic algae and bacteria of the plankton, are the lungs of the world ;)

On a scientific level you make a really good point on the lungs of the world. While I was spending time with the father of these kids, he felt that, clean air was one thing he took pride in being able to bring to the world. It was the term he used "the lungs of the world" when he told me what was going on. I felt like it fit. Thank you so for the congrats (and the science tip though! ;) )

Thank you for sharing it through pictures—sometimes it's hard to deal with abstract figures like '10000 people will lose their homes' but knowing these kids will have nowhere to go is heartbreaking.
