We Are Not Living The Life That We Are Created For

We are considered as stewards of nature. But how we live our lives now is the complete opposite. If you are not aware of the current issue, there were scientists that were arrested for peacefully protesting. They were sending the world a message that we only have a few years to live on this planet. Four years to be exact.

I guess we never learned. Or some of us never learned. One great example for this is what we are experiencing now, a world wide pandemic. We have been warned before by a scientist that this can happen but it was ignored and we are suffering from its consequences.

All of us are suffering from one's actions. We can feel the effects of climate change lingering in our skin. The heat of the sun, illnesses, typhoons, and other catastrophic events that were caused by climate change.

When will we ever learn from our mistakes? Is it the time when it's too late to take action? Now, now is the time to take actions for what has and have been continuously done by our own kind. Deforestation, Pollution, and other things that cause all of this to happen.

#LetTheEarthBreathe has trended on twitter and also has been circulating in many social media platforms. This is a great way to spread the issues. But this is not enough, sharing is not enough. We have to take action. As we have learned in the previous years of our education, we have been taught the 3Rs. And I am urging all of us that we should apply and do it to our day to day living.

Save energy. This is the easiest way that you can do. For example, do not use your bathroom light when it's day time. The light coming from outside is enough for you to see. You do not need a lot of light just for you to use the bathroom. Of course, the people that are living in condos or other buildings that do not have access to light are exempted from this.

There are still a lot of ways that you can reduce the consumption of energy. Take off the plugs of appliances that are not in use. We do not care about your electric bills, we care about how you can save energy and how it can help to save our planet.

During my early years, in elementary grade to be exact, I didn't really care about taking care of the planet. I was loitering and I didn't care if I threw my garbage in the streets. I just learned the value of taking care of our planet the time I went to high school. To be exact, I was ignorant of the bad effects that can be caused to the environment.

Awareness is a big factor that can help save our planet. What we can do is to teach by showing to others what we can do and to what we can benefit from doing the good deeds for the place that we live in.

We still have hope. Our home still has a chance. Let's spread awareness of what is happening and we can still live old and the future generations can still experience living on this planet without having to use gadgets that can help them breathe or that will make them look like robots.

I cannot do this alone but to what former Miss Earth Karen Ibasco said when asked during the top 4, with the question, "Who or what do you think is the biggest enemy of Mother Earth and why?" She answered,

"I believe that the real problem in this world is not climate change. The real problem is us because of our ignorance and apathy. What we have to do is to start changing our ways, to start recalibrating our minds and redirecting our steps because together, as a global community, our micro-efforts will have a macro-effect to help save our home, our planet."

We can eradicate the ignorance of others by showing and educating them.

This is not just for the benefit of us human beings but also for the millions of species that we share this world with. It is vital for us that we are able to breathe and so is for our planet. Together, it is possible. #LetTheEarthBreathe

Author's Note:

It is in our hands to decide what choices we are going to make for our future. And so, We should choose our world leaders who truly care about our future lives. Thank you for reading this!

"Ignorance and apathy." Totoo naman kasi talaga, mamsh. Si climate change, kaya namang solusyunan talaga eh. Ang problema lang talaga is nasa atin, we often ignore the signs that are already in front of us. Like 'yung nangyayari ngayon sa mga scientists, di sila pinapakinggan nung mga tao na mas higit na gusto nilang makinig sa kanila. 'Yung mga nasa taas~ kasi nga naman sila yung may mas access sa pang-malakasan na solutions for this problem. But how? Kung di naman sila pinapakinggan.

Pero sana, sana magawan ng paraan habang di pa super late to make an actions. Kaya natin 'yan, basta tulungan lang. ♥️

Tumpak Mamsh. Minsan nakakapagod na din. May solusyon pero konti ang kumikilos. Kailan kaya magigising yung iba? Kapag huli na ba? Hays. I still want to live old.

Sana nga eh. Hindi yung sa una lang. We really need to make actions and kalampagin yung mga companies na malaki ang contribution sa climate change.
