That's all I want.
To go outside and breathe in clean air,
not fill my lungs with smoke.
When I grew up I thought the world was my oyster,
able to do whatever I had my eyes set on.
But now I'm wondering if there will even be a world
for me to dream about...
As humans, we have learned to evolve in order to survive.
We have been lead to believe that we are the superior race,
that we control everything around us.
Well, that is only partly true.
Our actions have consequences...
and despite all the mistakes we have made,
we still cannot seem to change.
Since 2016, half of the coral in the
Great Barrier Reef has died.
There is more plastic in the waters
than fish and wildfires are becoming
more common than ever before.
When will it stop?
When will we realize that if we don't change
what we are doing now, nothing will ever
We are too far gone from what we used to
know the world as - but there is still time to fix it.
It may take years, decades even, but we can do it.
For 2019, think about our home,
Think about all the plastic in the waters,
animals becoming extinct,
the pollution that fills the air.
Think about all the problems that are happening
and what we can do to fix it.
The world is big...
While it might seem too big of a task,
it is possible.
There are plenty of others that wish for the same
thing for our future.
Unfortunately too much is gone,
never to be replaced again.
But there is still enough that can be saved.
For 2019, instead of worrying about the little things,
worry about the big picture.
The animals that roam the savannah,
the fish that swim in the sea.
For this year, help change the world.
