Oh! how i weep for you the coming generation Oh! how my heart deeply weeps for you because none of you will enjoy the good things nature has to provide. Oh! how i weep that none of you will be able to lead healthy lives. Do we ever pause and think about how life is going to be for our children, children’s children 50 years from now? Do we even expect them to lead healthy lives when we have already destroyed natural systems to an extent that they are unable to regenerate themselves? The rate at which the environment is being destroyed saddens me.Do we think about our grand grand parents,what if they had decided to kill the elephants like we do or even cut down the trees like we do mercilessly?…I am sure we would be having none by now.why don’t we care for our current generations and preserve this for them if not to enjoy but to at least let them have the slightest idea of what a natural system looks like. Greed and riches have taken the better part of us that caring for the environment is the least of our concerns and as Wangari Maathai once said “We owe it to ourselves and to the next generation to conserve the environment so that we can bequeath our children a sustainable world that benefits all” The decision lies with us; to care or not to care for the environment!
