At One With The Land

I can't seem to leave some news stories alone...


Yeah, I think this qualifies as a miracle.

Then again, we have to take this in context.

People in the US—and much of the rest of the so-called "civilized" world—have gotten pretty soft. If you were to take a randomly selected person and drop them off in the middle of the woods someplace with nothing, I would bet that they would be dead in a matter of a week or so. We no longer know how to live with nature or by our own resources.

People in areas like that where these three tough young men came from live closer to the land—or sea as in this case—and they know how to survive. They knew what they needed to do to live, and they did it. I doubt they even put any conscious thought into the process.

We here in the west get all of our ideas about survival from TV and movies. Take Lost as an example. In the first season, there was a lot about how the people were running out of food and water. For God's sake, there was enough food within steps of the beach to feed 10,000 people! And it rained every single day, like clockwork.

Take Cast Away. Please! Horrid movie! But, he had all sorts of problems and just barely hung on. Again, a tropical island is a perfect place to crash. Plenty of food and water. All you need to do is have the brains to use it.

The young men in the article had the brains to use their environment to survive.

I'm glad they are finally home and safe.

Keep Loving!
