“It’s all about the bees”

Good morning, friends. Did you know that something called Colony Collapse Disorder  has been making bees disappear of late. You might ask, “And your point?” Did you know that “without bees, a big piece of our food supply is in serious danger? Pollination by honey bees is key in cultivating the crops that produce a full one-third of our food.” Some scientists believe that it is because farmers have been using an untested pesticide since 2003 that the bees are disappearing. Well, there was one test... It was conducted by Bayer, the manufacturers of clothianidin.
Amazon Sage dream-travelled back in the 1950s, to another time an untested product was used indiscriminately. It was extensively used in the south to kill mosquitoes. Trucks would roam the neighborhoods “fogging” everything with the chemical. No one had a clue that years later, little girls who ran behind these trucks, playing in the magical looking fog, would die from it. One of those little girls was named Kay. What a bundle of life she was, laughing and getting others to laugh when they were down. 
“Kay, can you tell us what happened to you?” Kay’s sweet spirit does not hesitate for long before she replies, “I was taken by cancer, first one, then another until, at much too young an age, I died. I left all my friends to wonder why.... But I know why. It was the chemical DDT, from those trucks so long ago. Won’t you please make sure all these new chemicals that are sprayed around our land are tested? I’d love to see y’all, but not this way...” Good Bye, sweet Kay. See you in my dreams.
