LEARNING to make a difference

Week 8

There was once….

Only the sound of the bees and the wind in the wiry grass, the low murmuring of the moles in the cool dark earth…..

And the song of birds in the high blue sky.

It touched and warmed the hearts of those few who paused and craved to listen.

Then one day OTHERS came, and the sound of the bees was lost.

They scraped away the wiry grass.

The low murmuring of moles went unheard.

Tall buildings SCRATCHED the sky where the birds once sang

Every day there were more of THEM.

MAKING MORE NOISE….

Listening less…..

So they stopped thinking.

 

Task 1: Tall buildings SCRATCHED the sky where the birds once sang.
