There is a fire on one of our lungs in The Amazonian. It took weeks for it to be reported on the news and social media. It took weeks for people around the globe to realize the impact this fire has on our planet. There have been multiple mass shootings, and no one is trying to understand why a teen would go to such extreme.
Some people believe climate change is a lie. The level of the ocean is getting higher and higher; the icebergs are slowly melting, strange weather phenomenon is occurring. For instance, two years ago it snowed in Florida. Yes, in Florida. This year, a hurricane for the first time during my lifetime, passed close to my home. Season changes take longer to take place; winter is long, the summer heat is higher than the normal.
Although we have made progress on human rights, we still need a lot of work to do for humanity. We are mean to each other. People with mental illness are viewed as though they are doing that for attention. We see people that seek help for their health as weak. It isn't vulnerable to seek advice for your health; you're not calling out for attention by speaking about your mental illness or sexuality.
We are killing each other through racial biased, fear, and lack of understanding. We are killing animals for entertainment rather than survival. The older generation blames the younger generations for what is happening to our planet. The truth is we are trying to fix the planet from mistakes done years ago, mistakes that no one predicted was going to lead what we are going through nowadays. There is no generation to blame, what we should be doing is joining forces to save our home, Earth.
Good news is green movements have been getting implemented in multiple countries. A group of people is planting trees through the mountain range of our continent. There are gathering forces to stop the fire in the Amazonian. The Republic of Panama has banned the use of plastic bags -yes, Panama, the country that I thought was never going to catch up on making a green movement. I am from that country, and I am so proud of them.
In multiple countries, the use of metal straws is in motion as well as rewarding costumers who use their recycled bags. The new generation is coming forth open-minded, more ecological, and ready to make our planet a better place.
