TEARS OF RA
The Egyptian sun god Ra weeps honey bees.
Ancient civilizations understood the importance of nature. An Egyptian Myth tells of bees that were sent as messengers from the gods, falling down like tears towards earth and man to pass on secret messages.
This myth is poignant, a reminder of the endangerment of the honey bee and their disquieting decline. Nature gives us the messages of our path.
Our scientific community has given us information on the urgency
of this current environmental issue. Unfortunately, this information has been ignored for financial gain and deliberately treated as unworthy of serious consideration.
