If there is one thing that we should all value more than anything else, it should be our children. Even when you do not have children of your own, when you give importance to the young generation as a whole, you would still be valuing them. What is meant by giving value is the act of always putting the best interest of the future generation in the everyday decisions and actions that we do.
This is something that we also campaign for, here in Salmon Lake Center. We have special privileges for children, and we have areas dedicated to educating children about he value of Nature and Mother Earth. The people who are behind the building of this place and sanctuary, made sure that every structure is in no way, putting any life in danger. By life, we not only mean human life, but the lives of other creatures as well – birds, fishes, deers, and other wild animals.
We are all about preservation, as what should be done, since we only have one Earth. Yes, there are a lot of attempts in finding a new Earth for the future to live in, but right now, we only have this one, and we should be taking care of it, not bringing it to its ultimate doom. We have to be constantly reminded that the doom of the earth is the doom of the human race, and all other species, too.
The world should be filled with more people who care for nature. This does not mean that people should start building structures that are “eco-friendly” or should start living in caves again and whatnot. There are a lot of ways to help preserve Earth, with the most basic as energy saving and recycling.
There are larger ways to protect the future of this earth, and that is, to protect Mother Earth itself. Where would all these children live, prosper, lead and succeed if there is no more Earth for them to live, prosper, lead and succeed in?
We only have but one earth. We should not be selfish creatures and think only of our lives now. We have to consider the future generations. With how we treat nature today, will we still be leaving something for the coming generations to use, enjoy and pass on? Will they be able to enjoy the beaches like we do now, if we keep on commercializing them instead of preserving their natural beauty? Will they be able to trek the mountains and enjoy the resources of the forest, if we keep forgetting to plant new trees after we have cut them?
Life is short. Don’t make it shorter, or worse, impossible, for the children.
