Now and then I will hear in my heart a tiny voice that is not my own. The voice, the thoughts it creates, come and go quickly, in my mind.
The quiet voice came the other night. We sent you many warnings: white bison and other albino animals, but you continued poisoning the bees and destroying the mighty Amazon. You hunted elephants, rhinos, tigers, pangolins, and other rare and beautiful creatures. Ripped up the earth. Sullied the waters. Polluted the air. We sent you hurricanes, supertyphoons, earthquakes. We warned you with SARS, MERS, Ebola, and now Coronavirus — all these to let you know that you are going down the path of total destruction.
