How To Save The Earth – by Hugh W. Roberts
It’s an attack I’ll never forget.
Why us? Why did they have to come here and try and destroy the safe community we live in? We weren’t hurting anyone. All we wanted was to help them. Don’t they know what they’re doing when attacking the innocent? It’s first-degree murder.
“Earthing,” announced Father Brier. “Earthing is the answer. The next time they come back, we must send them back from where they once came.”
Now the soil is full of human remains. Instead of attacking us, they feed us and help us plant life survive. Earthing is saving the Earth.
