Don’t blame Mother Nature for the drought

Dear Editor,

The other day I read what the official water master said about the drought in Colorado. I believe his words were, “Mother Nature had put us in a hole.” Sounds like he was blaming Mother Nature for our lack of rain and snow.

This is a typical reaction from those unwilling to claim responsibility for their actions. Putting the blame upon another relieves oneself of the pain temporarily. Yet in the long run all of us are going to have to start acting responsibly in order to correct the imbalance in the weather patterns and everything else on the planet that nature is reflecting back to us to show us what we are doing so we’ll hopefully stop our destructive habits.

We need the become a part of the solution instead of the perpetrators of a very possible global catastrophe.

It’s time that the conscious people begin to stop giving their power to the ignorant and the foolish who blame our Mother for our plight. We need to gather together and create a solution that we can all live with in peace. This action begins when we stop our attempts to put the blame upon the innocent and take appropriate actions.

Yours truly,

David “Swift Eagle” Barlass
