#RRBC #RWISA “RISE-UP” Blog Tour – Day 8

Fewer suicides and more survivors,
More productivity in our workplace
With fewer hours at the job.

To care about the foods we eat,
To focus on nutrients from our earth
Without pesticides or genetic modifications?

If only we had stayed away
From GMO-products and processed foods,
We’d have fewer loved ones suffering
From obesity and digestive issues
And autoimmune disorders.

What if we cared
About our fellow man and woman and child
Enough to help them find shelter
And food
And employment?

If only we had cared more about
