This beautiful Earth we have long taken for granted, and still do. It does not matter how many environmental campaigns are launched, people around the world are still the same. We still litter. We still pollute. And in the last decade, violence. The latter also ruins our planet, our home. Killing of innocents. All in the name of terrorism or religion. Are we also on the eve of nuclear war? Only time will tell.
Small island Mauritius. A few years ago, we would have thought it nearly impossible to have floods or other environmental calamities of such ‘intensity’ here. Just a month ago we have been proven wrong. Lives were lost. The whole country was shaken. Our region’s environment conditions are changing. We recently had a cyclone which acted in a real bizarre way. The Mauritian Meteo experts have never seen the likes of it before. <Sigh>
We all know that there is no going back. The damage has been done. We just have to bear the consequences. And pray that God has mercy on us all.
Anyway, In My World wishes you a Happy Earth Day! Make the most of it, while it still lasts.
