One world and one life

glowing world

We have one world to share and one life to live.

In order to live that life we need a few important elements. We need water, air, food, sun and gravity. We can influence four of these elements but in the past 100 years our influence has been negative. And yet we have not run out of water, we still have air to breathe, there’s food to eat (though very poorly distributed) and we have the ozone layer that protects us from the dangerous rays of the sun.

The problem is that we have reduced the quality of these important elements:

All drinking water contains substances that should not be there.

Our seas are full of microscopic plastic and othere particles.

The air inside and out is contaminated with hazardous chemicals.

Our food is much less nutritious today than it was in the past. It contains pesticide residues, heavy metals and other substances that should not naturally be there and can be harmful to our health.

We have one world to share and one life to live. Let’s help eachother and preserve this beautiful, wonderful place.

We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So lets start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
Its true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me.

Michael Jackson
