It is not easy to stay awake. Pictures of our devastated earth injure our hearts. But if we do not stay awake, who will defend our wounded planet?
It is hard to accept the almost certain fact that, even if humanity came to environmental sanity today, we cannot save the earth as we once knew it. Extinct species and exhausted top soils are gone. Soils take thousand of years to replenish. And we will not even know many of the species that have vanished.
It is not easy to do, but looking at the pictures is a way of remembering the importance of staying at our posts and speaking for the animals, for the earth and for our own children of the future.
