A massive elliptical ball, travelling at an unimaginable speed, revolving around its own axis, full of fresh streams of water, filled with lush green pasture lands and hosting various kinds of living beings is our home that we call Earth. When we were sent onto it from the heavens, we were aliens to this planet, but it didn’t turned its back on us, rather it provided us with shelter and food and let us flourish for thousands of years. We started our journey from Africa with two persons Adam and Eve, and now we are around 7 billion spread on every part of the world, thriving from its fresh waters, delicious fruits, energy and oxygen.
Yes there were some dark days when we suffered, there were days when alien objects like asteroids tried to wipe out our race, there were days when floods and rains from the sky drowned us, and there were days when the harsh snow took away millions of our precious lives, but the planet and its habitats went through all these tragedies together, and after every such incident, our planet helped us re-establish ourselves and grow even more than before.
We human need to realize that this earth has some rights on us as well. It has given us a lot of things, but it asks for something in return as well. It gives us oxygen but it has the right to breathe itself as well. It gives us shelter from the harmful rays coming from the sun, but it demands that we protect its ozone layer as well. It gives us food from the seas and from the lands but it also demands us to not disturb its ecosystem and balance.
The earth breathes my fellows as we breathe. We need to stop all the greenhouse gasses and CFCS being produced by the industries and the vehicles, or else the earth will choke and would no longer be able to protect us. The signs that are being seen by the scientists are alarming, all of us need to realize that the earth is asking for help. The change in weather all around the world, the rising temperature, the melting glaciers, the depleting ozone layer, and the extinguishing creatures all need our utter most attention. These are not the things to be taken lightly. All of us together need to be aware of this alarm and need to be ready to help our planet, because if we don’t do something now, we won’t even have a chance to regret. The effects of this careless attitude would be catastrophic. Global warming is a fact, it has happened before and it can happen again, unless we take these signs seriously and do the preventive measurements.
No matter what race, caste, region and religion are we from, we all have same kind of needs and necessities .We all need food, water, shelter and proper temperature. And this beautiful earth is common to us all, it is home to us all, we should forget all our differences and should work hard to make this earth peaceful and healthy.
