NOTED/SIGNED AND SHARED IN MY OTHER GROUPS

1 year ago

Its like the day has turned to rust

Like every dreams been sealed shut

Like every door is closed before we've gotten out

As bullets rip the air in two from house to house


We are all that we are, so terribly sorry

We are all that we are, so terribly sorry

The moon you've felt, it has no side

That's dark like hell, or safe from light

Just blown apart, by wind from stars

With white dust tides to pull on ours


I see the crowds their giving way

For some, they're better off that day

The bombs blew off the shells

Their glowing red at burst

The less there is to feel each night upon the earth


We are all that we are, so terribly sorry

We are all that we are, so terribly sorry

The moon you've felt, it has no side

That's dark like hell, or safe from light

Just blown apart, by wind from stars

With white dust tides to pull on ours


The moon you've felt, it has no side

That's dark like hell, or safe from light

Just blown apart, by wind from stars

With white dust tides to pull on ours

Stop Trayvon Martin's killer, and more like him, from carrying loaded guns in our communities. Oppose S. 2188 and S. 2213 These bills would force our state to honor the concealed carry permits of other states with abhorrently low

Hi Dear Friends, I am sorry I haven't kept up with letting you know my news links, But i feel like the bad news wolf fairy. There is nothing but bad news coming in about the wolves.  BUT, Don't lose all hope.. we are losing the wolves in so many ways.. here is the bad news first.. sit down your going to need a chair.... We Lost Wyoming, ya.. we could not rescue them, they had the orders set up so screwy no one could get in there to get them. They had it open for helicopters to shoot and kill, no restrictions. It was too risky to send our teams in.. Then Canada opened up poisoned bait to be thrown down for the wolves up there... so we are on a mission to try to work with the Keystone XL Enbridge Resistance. But there is actually 3 entrance points, Alaska, Maine and BC...so This is Unfamiliar territory for me and I am kind of gotten to be commander on this project... EEEEKKK! I am NOT FAMILIAR with this .. so i am scrambling to learn anything.. I been recruiting anyone to help catch me up with any info... there is 6000 wolves going to be murdered up there and along with the caribou and what-ever other animals going to eat that poison..this is really bad!... Now for some good news.. we have gotten the red wolves in NC protected .. we got them safe and sound... scooped them up, and the mexican wolves are put away also.. this news will not be in the national news.. its all going to be hidden.. just know they are ok.. thats all you need to know... Journey the wolf from california.. is also ok.. no more news coming out about him... we need to protect our "gems" and we have a few gems tucked away that we wont let anyone know about until future time...so not all is lost.. there is some really cool things that we got in our pockets... Have to save something for our kids and grandbabies... needed to... can't let them be totally gone.. so beleive in miracles.. there is some..  believe it.... as for the numbers... in Jan we had started with about 4100 wolves in the usa, and by the time we hit the end of march 2013... we will be down to around 500, this is how many we have lost, add 6000 to that from canada and the ones were losing in the other parts of the world we will have killed about20,000 wolves in a year and almost wiped them out world wide in a little less then 2 years .... SO, I am trying to get some national news on NBC or BBC again...since i was on BBC with the re-intro in 1995. I am thinking i can take that tape and I might have some push with that, as a follow up.  I was only one of 2 girls actually on the pilot program with the wolf. So maybe i stand a good chance to get a interview. If i live long enough. I was actually offered a biography interview... but i dont know if i will have time for that... so i need to get something going soon.  .... OK some fast news... The org's have went from 50,000 people... to 100,000 members and now that i added the keystone...we hit 200,000 member mark... we got a FORCE ... we can make one hell of a stomp...this is world wide... our voice is getting heard and Gov Walker is creeping around me... and I don't think it's because he likes my old grey hair   o,0  ugh...he creeps me out.... NEWS NOW... I got a few petitions  please sign them if you like them... thanks  peoples!  love you
