I believe that with persistence change will come, in our lives and in the life of this planet “Earth”.  We are the stewards of this Earth and as stewards the responsibility falls on each of us to be accountable for the sustainability of the only habitable home that we have and that home is Earth.  It is a living entity and if or when it dies because of our greed or incompetence we would die too, sooner than later.   Our kids are depending on us to gift them a world free of pollution, disease, hatred, war and iniquities.

  1. I don’t think this last generation is counting on that at all. They seem to be more conscious and are taking matters into their own hands, becoming full-on vegans and caring for the earth in ways their predecessors never have.

  2. Kids nowadays are mature beyond their age. Look at how they’ve escalated talks about climate change! Politicians are now sitting up, and listening.

    p.s. Thank you for the re-follow. I change blog domains, and I lost contacts in the process. 🙂

  3. This was something very different and yet perfectly related to. The choice of words and metaphors is wonderful and makes everything seem so realistic. The way how women in this society are treated and grief-stricken is completely and beautifully portrayed. I could feel my eyes moisten while reading some lines. What a masterpiece!! Kudos to you!!

    You are welcome
