I used to have sleepless nights over the pollution that we human beings were inflicting on the Earth. I used to obsess over the waste created in everyday life.
Once, while discussing my anxieties with a friend, his comments brought things into perspective. "Don't worry about the Earth. It will take care of itself. If you've to worry about someone, worry about the human race. That's the one to suffer by the changes it's creating.' Wise words, those!
I realized how vulnerable we are. If we don't understand the implications of our actions, we're the ones who'll suffer. The Earth will recover. It always has. We've to change the narrative.
It's not the Earth that needs saving. It's us!
The Earth has always been there and will always be there.
With or without you.
You need the Earth.
The Earth doesn’t need you.
You think you are high and mighty.
Forces of nature are mightier than you.
You think you are invincible.
Stop kidding yourself!
Act to save the human race.
