The world we leave them

The fact is that we will die. One day we will all pass away. We will no longer be here on planet earth and what will remain of us? What is our legacy? What will we leave behind well there are moral codes and philosophies that we will have left for our children and even more tangible something physical that we will leave for our children is of course the earth itself. Think about it.

It is a bit grandiose I know but it is a fact right? I mean we as a species effect our habitat more than any other species I can think of. Plant or animal, now you may be thinking about bacteria. Bacteria is tough and spreads rapidly right? It does it came seem like an organism which devours and destroys everything but it is not it finds balance and it thrives and survives.  Mankind has learned much more about bacteria and (when you are not eating) you should take some time and read about probiotics. It is a very interesting article about bacteria and about how bacteria lives an thrives and balances itself out within it’s host or environment.  So bacteria also dies and what it leaves is its’  environment and if it leaves an environment that is destroyed and ravaged it has been a bad steward and all the philosophy and morals will be of no use to teh second generation.

I am not sure if you know it or not, but the world is changing and we are changing it. The climate change we are experiencing is changing the world we live in. Our children  and our grandchildren will not live in a world that we have lived in and thrived in because of our actions and inaction’s.

I guess the question is not will our children live in a different world as much as it is how much different will the world be for them.

How can I help? That is the big question now. What can one person do to save the world?  I wondered this myself and of course I went to google. Google knows everything right?

Guess what I found. I found a website from the epa with small things we can do to help.  Guess what else I found. As you start doing small things others do some of the same small things and as with any movement small things effect large changes and while we may not leave the children with the best world we may leave them with one that is habitable and relatively safe.

Isn’t that important?

Let me be clear, I am in no way an activist but well I can’t help but think about two really awesome people.

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” 
― Dr. SeussThe Lorax

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” 
― Anne Frank
