I'm just floored! Almost speechless! Butterflies, especially the Monarchs, were some of our favorite "things" even before I grew up enough to learn about their unbelievably impossible dreamed-of journey. . .and creating for all the world such beautiful fragile beauty. And now even they face devestation! Only the most heartless, senseless, greedy, and often cruel destroyers, evidently with no care for their own children, let alone yours and mine, whose whole world was once beautiful and fun and magic with such awesome wonders as Monrch butterflies, while it also was nurturing the most wonderous creatures great and small. . . including us.

They say butterflies are the most delicate and will be the first we lose to pollution of our planet. Before Clinton got into office we hadn't seen hardly any for years. His stricter administration on factories helped bring them back.

And so people wipe out about everything, just for the money.
The saying is that money makes the world go round, but what if there's nothing more to go round for?
Tnx for the post Simone.

What is the matter with the Mexican Government... Is the President too busy admonishing the US for the treatments of Mexicans in US that he cannot take care of his own country... The Mexican Government should send in the military to protect the areas and habitats of the Monarch Butterflies. Or is the military so corrupt that it cannot do the job of protecting such as endearing species as the Monarch Butterflies... The World will be watching... Once this area is gone, it is gone forever... Guess this may happen on the new President's watch and he will be remembered as the Man who let the Monarchs disappear. The Monarchs are incredible that they fly thousands of miles to a specific area in Mexico.

Is there a petition to help the Monarch Butterflies...

TY, Simone.
