THIS CENTURY, THIS GENERATION
BY PATRICK KHRISTIAN

The world has transformed into a place of technology and machines. And we, the inhabitants of it, have found ourselves overindulged by what the modern world has to offer. We depend on what we made so much, that we start deteriorating, while our machines flourish and improve.

This has gone on for quite some time now, that we actually start to believe, that we are nothing without our own creation. At first, the things we invented became a milestone; an achievement and a contribution to science. But somewhere along the way, we decided that there is absolutely no limit and boundaries to the extent of our doings. Everything good turns bad in excess; and we have done just that. We pushed it and made a deal to trade nature for technology.

We drill the earth, disrupting whatever standing in between, for riches. We take more than the earth could provide, killing her in the progress. It has become obvious, that with time, the only plausible result is destruction. And that is in our hands.

Though fading, there is still a glimmer of hope. If we turn back now and decide to alter our wrongfully made choice, we might just save our home planet. So, I ask you. All of you who are reading this; to look away from your phones and technologies. To step out of your car or air-conditioned rooms, and take a look around. How many trees you see and realize how many have died. Open your eyes to the unconsciously selfish lives we are living; enjoying it, with the Earth as a mere liability.

Unless you want our generation to be remembered as the one who saw the end of the planet, I suggest you choose better.
