What I stand for is what I stand on– Earth.anonymous
“Leave nothing but footprints. Take nothing but pictures. Kill nothing but time…”
These are some of the basic rules when you climb up the mountain, when you go for a walk in the park, wandering at the beach, or simply enjoying the serenity and peace in nature.
Have you been a tourist, a voyager, a mountaineer, or a morning jogger? Probably, you might have witnessed a perfect sunrise, a dewy mist of a foggy morning, and a cold crisp air in the night. Do you see the falling leaves and how they pile up into a golden-brown pieces of dried mats? They go back to the face of the earth, leaving nothing but silhouettes of viens and stems. You might have seen a photo or two of such fascinating clutters on the ground, under the tree where they’re scaterred around.
On the other hand, have you ever imagined what happened to the plastic bottles and cups if not properly segregated as a trash or into a recycled craft? Chances are, they’re all lying lifeless at the park or on the sidewalks where no one cares about.
Take a deep breath and think before you buy your fav frappe, an icy bubble tea in a plastic cup, or a frozen smoothie. Where are you supposed to through the palstic cups aftermath? Choose to save the earth rather than help destroy it. Let’s face it! And keep it safe from the destructive hands of the people who think they make life convenient while leaving the earth a lifeless planet.
You think a clean-up drive is enough? But, where do you throw out the plastic bags, disposable cups? Back to the land you’ve cleaned up? Take actions and be responsible to take care of your habitat. After all, it’s where we all live. The earth is our shelter, hence we should take care of it more than anything else. When it cries, we suffer. When it dies, we can’t go anywhere.
Learn how to appreciate the beauty of nature by not littering a single trash wherever you go. We can help make the Earth a better place to live in, by planting more trees and promoting sustainable living. What could have been fun than living back to the basics? Definitely life changing! Try going out sometimes, and feel the rain on your skin, savour the sunshine that can take away the shiver of the evening. Try reaching out the peak of awareness where you solemnly promise to take care of the land that bears the food you eat out of your hand.
Let’s face it. The face of the earth is the face of the people living on it. What can we do to help lessen the burden of nature? Food scarcity, lack of potable water source, flooding, natural disasters and calamities, landslides, and tsunami are nightmares we don’t want to end up to.
Let’s face it– we only live once, and so is the Earth we live in.
