The Earth - If We Act Now We Can Reverse the Problems
An Essay By Aradhita,  12 Years Old
Noida, Uttar Pradesh, India

"Soon Mother Earth will turn lifeless and bare,
the future it writes - there isn't one there !" *

It may be too shocking to be the truth, but it is true that at this pace mankind is destroying our beloved planet, and there might be no future neither for her, nor for us as inhabitants of this planet. It is high time that we realize the damage we have done to poor Mother Earth, as there is very little time and a lot left to do. Why doesn't everyone realize that we are indebted to Mother Earth for her kindness to us since the human evolution?

We are not helpless. If we want, we can do a lot. We can be generous for a change! We can reuse and recycle many objects. Joining and forming environment clubs is yet another solution. Schools can also organize awareness campaigns, as in the end, it is awareness at all levels that will help improve the situation. A Chinese proverb also says - "If you are thinking one year ahead, sow a seed; if you are thinking ten years ahead, plant a tree; and if you are thinking a hundred years ahead, educate the people." Education of the environment is also really important, thus, we should try and watch videos and read about the topics.

Thus, there is still hope. With efforts of each one of us, we will not only be able to arrest the decay, but reverse it as well. It will be our way of giving back to Mother Earth what earlier generations have depleted.

In the end remember - "Nature never did betray the heart that loved her."***

* From a poem called "The Future"
*** From a poem written by William Wordsworth.
