This world could be such a wonderful place, but instead it has been reduced to what we see now. The main elements for the making of that indescribably beautiful world are all here, but instead there is so much that shouldn't be here. But we need to realize that however unnatural, everything had a beginning as something of this earth, or of this universe. We just made things different. Building materials, non-biodegradable plastics, chemicals, nuclear wastes--all came from this world sometime, in some form.
Was all this meant to happen? Was it meant to teach us a lesson about what can happen to a dying earth? Could it even have been meant to teach us how to save it?
Or was it all just a fluke--were humans not meant to find out the secrets of how to poison all earth's creatures, every time they took a drink or ate a meal, every time they drew breath? Were they not meant to hear the groan of a thousand-year-old tree as it toppled to the ground? Were we too curious for our own good, and now the whole world is bearing the weight of our actions?
It's tearing me up inside...why did the world get to be how it is? I just want to make it all right again, but I don't know how. This isn't right, the world shouldn't be like this. So why is it, and what can we do about it?
There will be a time when the earth will get so bad that it won't be able to support life. That may be sooner than we think, or then again it may not be. But either way, we have to prevent it from happening. We must.
