Then I heard the enormous scream of nature….. ~ Edward Munch
Hi everyone 🙂 So… Happy Earth Day. Planted a tree so far?I am writing this post in honor of The Earth Day. To be able to live here, we are so lucky aren’t we? But what are we doing to earn it?
We make a living. We earn. We sell our skills and talents as we get paid in return. Earth has offered us so much by birth but what are we doing to EARN the amazing resources the Mother Earth offers us?
International Earth Day began in the early 1970s by America. For obvious reasons it wasn’t a hot topic then. Now it’s a burning topic. Earth Day is quite popular and as soon as you log in on any social media profile you will find at the least 25 images about it. Great isn’t it? Let’s celebrate the Earth day by sharing tons of quotes and pictures of it but we are too busy and beautiful to get to planting ourselves. We go to wonderful travel destinations and take lots of pictures of the picturesque beauty of the place which mainly includes trees, gardens and green mountains. But hello, planting one tree in the backyard is an invitation to bugs and creepy crawleys. When did we become such hypocrites? In my society only my house has trees and my parents despite having full-time jobs love to take care of it. My parent’s have always had a garden, my father loves giving different fruits to the society kids. It’s fun watching him do all sorts of things for the garden and those kids. I want to be like them, I want to be a person who grows for others too.
If Sharing is caring. Sharing the fruits of the trees you grow is one of the highest kind of caring I guess.
I have been a gardening addict for as long as I can remember. I love getting my hands in the soil, I feel a unique sense of euphoria whenever I see a tree. There’s so much that goes into making of a tree. Planting it, nurturing it for years before you can eat its fruits. It’s funny how some of the most important trees don’t have fruits that man can eat. There’s a tiny fig tree in my front garden. I rarely get to eat its fruits because some bird or squirrel will always eat it up, the fig fruits are just too sweet and yummy to ignore. I love them. My father said, “let’s cut it down since it’s of no use, the birds leave nothing for us.” I was about to open my mouth in argument for the birds and animals but then he went like, “No, lets leave it. Let them have it.” And I wonder where do I get my kindness from? I couldn’t help but say, “Love you papa.”
If fathers are the most amazing characters made by nature then mother is the miracle of nature. Well, mine are.
Well, moving on.
Almost all of us shared one post about Leonardo DiCaprio winning the Oscar Award, it gave birth to too many memes and jokes for days that followed. Yay! The great actor finally won an Oscar, I felt happy for him but not happy enough to share about it on every social media platform. Maybe I should have, everyone was doing it. But I set in a corner thinking to myself about his speech. The man has been one of my favorite actors since I saw his eyes in the Titanic movie, never have eyes spoken so much. Well, enough of the girl crush.Here’s the video of his speech at the 2016 Oscars.
So did you guys listen? Can you feel it all around you? The growing heat and the rising problems of global warming? Well, did you know global warming was important once upon a time? Yes, we needed global warming in order to stay warm. But do we need a 50 Degree temperature outside when we have to go out?
Yes you are safe in your AC houses or offices but what about those billions of people who work outside in the burning sun? And how long will you stay cool inside, thinking you have got an Ac & someone else will plant a tree? What if nobody does? If not for nature, wake up for yourself and plant a tree. Please oh, please my dear friend I beg you to plant at least enough tree to equivalent for your family members.
Just imagine how beautiful and green our world would be if seven billion people decided to bring up one tree, just one?
I sort of like the third image the most. It would be wonderful to walk out of my house and find a canopy of large trees as I walk towards the start of my day. The question is, are we ready to do it for ourselves?
Bring up a tree. I repeat, bring up a tree. One for each of us.
Take care. Have a wonderful day.
