The power of words!
Everyone loves a good quote, right?
Well, I must say I’ve rather enjoyed this ‘‘3 Day Quote Challenge’ with choosing a new quote to share each day and explaining my reasons for choosing it. I love to have fun with words, I love sharing and I love encouraging others – the perfect challenge for me 😉
As today 22nd April is ‘World Earth Day’ I felt it appropriate to choose a quote from ‘Mr all things nature’ himself, Sir David Attenborough:
I chose this quote as I feel it hits home the important message of not sitting back thinking that things are not our problem and that we can’t do anything about the state of the world now and for the future – not only for the environment but for ourselves and our loved ones!
As humans, some find it easy to turn their backs on things that don’t necessarily concern them or affect them in a big enough way to provoke them to get involved, research or make changes.
We only have to look at the state of the world, pollution, wildlife, tree population etc to see the results of human inaction or incorrect repeated action.
I look at the state of my own UK Government and see them inhumanly deporting people from the ‘Windrush Generation’, taking school meals away from children, making it almost impossible to get disability benefits unless you can’t move at all, room caps on housing benefit, the cut to ESA, the increase of knife crime amongst our youth, failing to give unbiased treatment to certain sectors of society like the poor, old, disabled, non-white etc.
My list could go on and I’m sure you could do the same about where you are from in the world too…
HOWEVER, we do have choices to make daily and decisions to make that can help people, places, animals and most of all our future generations! If we can’t help out of human kindness and collective love, then let it be solely for selfish reasons such as doing the best for our own children and our own families – that reason is as good as any to make changes!
So there you have it my last quote for the ‘3 Day Quote Challenge’ – I’m glad you have enjoyed it as much as I have!
