Save the Reef

Well so much for one of the Seven Wonders of the World – the Great Barrier Reef won’t be for much longer it seems. This land and sea is treated without love, respect, or care. It’s not only the land, but also the first peoples of this wonderful land – no love, no respect, no care.  Well I hope all the miners have a plan for the restoration of the land after it has been abused both above and below the earth. The destroyers are going to have a huge job, so there will be plenty of work for everyone helping to restore the land and sea and probably never its former beauty. The love of money is the root of all evil.
