How do you feel when the Winter comes?
How do you feel when no one understands your loneliness and sorrow?
How do you feel when they cut your bodies and burn them into ruins?
I see you standing there alone and sighed with grief.
You are afraid of being treated as your friends.
But now you have no worries, because right now there is only me. Tell me your pain. Tell me your despair.
You have no reasons to fear, because now it’s the time for us to realize how important you are. Tell me your concern. Tell me your anger!
You are the gifts from nature. You are the painter who decorates our world into a colorful heaven.
You are the guards of danger. And you have beautiful names – trees.
As one human being, I am now standing out to tell you that we will keep working to rebuild you a comfortable home with hope and green.
People of the Earth, our environment is getting worse these days with the development of industries and political issues. For example, the variety of life on Earth, including “the number of species of plants, animals, microorganisms, the enormous diversity of genes in these species, and the different ecosystems on the planet”(Shah, Anup), is decreasing these years.
Also, the change of climate is a big issue we should focus on. According to some scientific data, “2005 was officially the hottest year in recorded history, and global temperatures are the warmest in this millennium.” (Global Environmental Protection Issues)
Let’s look at some “scary” facts. “China is adding a 1000-megawatt coal-fired power plant every week! Texas, a US leader in wind development, now wants to build 11 more coal-fired, carbon emitting plants — a surefire pathway to increasing pollution! If we don’t change course, the experts project a doubling of CO2 concentrations and dire consequences.” (Global Environmental Protection)
Fortunately, most of us know the danger and are trying to change the situation by doing lots of works in different countries. In China, people begin to pick up trash in streets, parks and schools as a community services. In Japan, “FUJITSU TEN is widening the circle of voluntary environmental action, with each and every employee fulfilling his or her responsibility as a member of the community. In addition, we perform tree planting and stock waterways with fish to help maintain biodiversity.” (Global Environmental Protection)
Take the action now and begin to do the smallest things.
Starting from picking up trashes and saving energy. Do not forget the easiest ones which can change a lot as a result.
How will you feel if the air is filled with clearness and fragrance?
How will you feel if the sky is colored into bluish green as a mirror of beauty?
How will you feel if our friend nature starts to sing out with joy again?
I see your smile with desire and hope.
