World oceans Day; what does that mean to you? Really. Do you go to the beach and fill a bag with trash and debris from the beach? Do you go to an organized beach cleanup and help pick up some trash, maybe buy a few tickets for the raffle prizes?
Whatever you do i implore you all to take a bit of time to reflect on the fact that we are losing the fight for the ocean that covers 71% of our planet and that is catastrophic for mankind. We are all to blame. Me, you everyone of us in varying degrees contributes to urban runoff pollution that is destroying marine life and making us all sick. We fertilize our lawns and gardens, we drive and drip oil from our cars, we wash our cars in the streets and too many of us just don’t realize what we are doing has a terrible effect on the ocean environment and it affects all species in the ocean.
It is our ignorance and our ignorance is due to our complacency and i believe that many of us just think the problem is too big and nothing can really be done anyway. That is simply not true. We can make changes and we can do it at home and wherever we go if we are aware, thats all it will take but we all have to know and if we know we cannot un-know and I hope we will behave accordingly. We have tolerated and accepted the pollution we dump into our oceans every single day and we have simply failed to act; personally and collectively
Contemplate the fact that we are leaving our children and our children to come with a dying ocean and we have failed them on our watch. We have ignored the knowledge and ther proof we now have and ignored the warning signs everywhere.
if we continue on this path the future of our planet and the next generations will judge us harshly for what we have not done and what we have left for them. It is true that what we do or do not do in the next ten years willl have a direct affect on the next ten thousand years.
it begins or ends with the choices we make now. If we don’t know we can’t change and if we don’t see what’s going on and where we are heading our apathy and failure to act will seal our fate. Do some research online- don’t just take my word for it. The information is readily available. Do something good for the oceans everday not just Saturday. Incorporate the things you can do to reduce runoff from your won homes, it’s easy. See for yourself, the oceans need our help now, more than ever
