When I think on the fate of Mother Earth’s creatures and their decimation even since my childhood - of the end of innocence for children in today’s shallow, wage-slave world. the loss of so many priceless lifeforms and beauty beyond compare, my heart weeps for children that will never know that magic and all the creatures to become extinct.
We are led by evil stupidity and ignorance; by men and women who know only greed and wealth as their goals of life on earth, and they make all humankind poorer for their blindness.
"Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature – the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter"
“A child’s world is fresh and new and beautiful, full or wonder and excitement. It is our misfortune that for most of us that clear-eyed vision, that true instinct for what is beautiful and awe-inspiring, is dimmed and even lost before we reach adulthood. If I had influence with the good fairy who is supposed to preside over the christening of all children, I should ask that her gift to each child in the world be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life, as an unfailing antidote against the boredom and disenchantment of later year…the alienation from the sources of our strength.” Rachel Carson
