Sharing Gratitude

Bees are vulnerable, because of humans.. They owe us nothing, and have given us life, by pollinating our planet freely. Our poisons are everywhere, harming them, and in the end ourselves. We'll die after we've killed off these God's on Earth. Children slapped chlorine water in waves over this terrifying bee in the hot tub, near lavender flowers. I jumped in the water in effort to SAVE THE BEES! I cupped it into my hands immediately and drained the water. I bridged my hand on the cement near the flowers. It moved up my arm, and dried off, cleaning itself for about a half hour. After two failed attempts to fly away about 15 minutes apart, I placed it on a flower with another bee.
