Can you imagine how this world looked like even before man set foot on Earth? I can picture it out as a wonderland---a paradise of peaceful contentment. Trees are proudly standing and caressed by the gentle breeze. The animals wandering around freely without bothering if someone would appear carrying a hatchet. The land is bountiful, soil is free from poisonous chemicals, the sun setting down across the sea and completing the beautiful horizon. But that was too long ago… The world has totally changed from simplicity to sophistication, from everything to nothing...There's really nothing wrong about progression and all that, but then humans have grown to be greedier than crocodiles, therefore badly affecting our relationship with our environment. So what I‘m trying to say is that we have to be aware of what’s really happening to the world. With the global warming, land conversions, dying forests, fish kills, unstoppable mining and all that, I think it’s about time that we realize the truth ---- It is our fault. We have no one to blame but ourselves.
However, the problem that many people face is how to change not only their beliefs, but their entire life just by accepting these facts. The truth is that humankind just takes whatever there is to be taken. Most of the time we take more than that we deserve. We should take it as the idea of understanding the reality behind the loss of our world's natural reality. Our life depends so much on our Mother Earth. We’re nothing without this place that we live in. And since there is nothing but one Earth, it is indeed our responsibility as intelligent people to take care of our resources and preserve it for the following generations.
But on how I am seeing it today I can tell that the nature is surely at stake. Are we forgetting our responsibilities as human beings? Have we forgotten that the more we hurt the environment the more it gets back at us? We need to learn the truth about giving and taking. This means that when we cut down trees, we need to plant back seeds in return. When we plant seeds, we have to make sure that they grow to trees that can be used and be replaced by other people.
When will we ever learn? When will we all wake up from this chaotic nightmare. Earth to mankind!
