Sure it is a single picture, taken surreptitiously, but it suggests yes, we are destroying our home. Even so, we go through the pantomime of talking about quality control and rigorous standards for our food producers whilst we are polluting the sea, the air and the soil.
The damage plastic is doing to the oceans is common knowledge and yet, rightly perhaps in the spirit of freedom of choice, fish remains a popular food for many.
That we choose to breathe in horrendous amounts of harmful particles, instead of cutting back on our motorized vehicle usage, is another contradiction of the modern world.
All in all the outlook appears bleak as we ponder the reality that yes we are destroying our home.
Knowing things on a large scale change only after much time and discussion, we at least have the option to amend our behaviour with immediate effect. By opting for more beneficial alternatives and implementing a mindful approach to how we treat the environment we are doing our bit to stem the destruction.
Furthermore, our actions could be witnessed by others and become examples to replicate, thus spreading the efforts to counter the fact that yes we are destroying our home with our actual ways of being. That in itself would be another step forward.
Although I am sad it is necessary to write this post, I appreciate your presence here and thank you for reading this ‘Yes we are destroying our home’ rant today.
