I was next to the plover nesting area at Stehli Beach in Bayville, N.Y. today. The plover is like a sandpiper, a beautiful beach bird that the Town of Oyster Bay is trying to protect. It is a fulfillment of one of humankind’s duties to take care of the wonderful world God has given us lest we destroy it.
We have a responsibility, and that comes from realizing that the Earth and its plenitude are limited, and we humans can destroy it for our posterity. We don’t want to do that, anymore than we want to harm our present inhabitants. (God forgive the Russians.) As is typically human, we are not doing so well at that.
Say a prayer for all good human endeavors.
