Claire Tells Us: The Story That Is Told To All
Once upon a time, Seven Children go to play on the Planet that is the home of the Tiger. Everything on the Planet, from the smallest one-celled microbe to the largest dinosaur, in every environment that exists in past and in recent time, is on Earth so that Tigers can thrive there. The Tiger is to go through its evolution on this incredibly beautiful Planet. Past, present and future Tigers are meant to live and to evolve here, according to their own plan.
Unfortunately, humans make such a mess it begins to interfere with the very existence of Tigers on their own Planet! To give credit where credit is due, some humans worry about Tigers even before the Message. Humans invent a list they put Tigers on, along with a growing number of other creatures, called the Endangered Species list. That list usually means whatever is on it is not long for their Planet.
Tigers did what they could to remind humans of their importance on Earth and that Earth is the Tiger's Planet. If you pay close attention to a Tiger, or even to a picture of a Tiger, you know this to be true. Most humans do not pay that kind of attention to Tigers or to anything else. Most people are too busy. When most wild (that means should not be anywhere near people or people's things) animals die in captivity, Tigers managed to live and even produce young there. These magnificent creatures not only gave up their own freedom, they gave up the freedom of their children, just to try to tell people what is happening. Despite these efforts, Tiger emissaries do not seem to be doing much good at getting their message across.
Humans seemed to be busier than ever, doing about everything they need to do to make sure that Tigers will disappear. There is less and less of a Tiger population each day. Tiger habitat is being eaten up by human activity and carelessness at an alarming rate. People think they need to be busy in it or near it in just about any way except leaving Tigers alone there.
Humans are doing such intrusive and destructive things that the air, the water, the climate and the overall environment of the Earth is changing in ways that are not good for most of the Earth's creatures, Tigers and humans included.
Clearly, it is time for the Children to play a different Game. They call it Clean Up. They make up Rules to follow, which makes the Game the most Fun of any Game that is ever played on Earth.
Have Fun Playing and Be Kind!
