watching the world bleed from on high

I came across this on Nasa’s Instagram feed. It’s probably one of the saddest photos I believe I’ve ever seen. I’ll quote Nasa to give you the details.

From 250 miles above Earth, orbiting the planet at 17,500 mph aboard the International Space Station (@iss), astronaut Ricky Arnold (@Astro_Ricky) captured this photograph of changing landscape in the heart of Madagascar. You can see drainage into the sea in the Betsiboka Estuary due to decimation of rainforests and coastal mangroves.

This is just one more example (out of an infinite number) of the incredibly destructive force we are on this planet. God help us all, if He wants to any more.
