What do we leave for our descendants ?

My father made these perfect wooden spoons for my mother and me. The smaller spoon is my mother’s.

We parents leave many kind of materialistic and intellectual property for our children and grandchildren. For example I have many items that reminds me of my past relatives.

Our generation though have much bigger responsibility of heritage than ever. We must leave a healthy Earth to our descendants. I think only small group of people really understand it. Many parents save money for their children, but they still drive a car every day and do not recycle, or do not sort their garbages. They don’t realize, that money doesn’t matter if the Earth don’t exist anymore.

Still many people think, that only governments have responsibility of environment, but actually responsibility belongs to all of us. Now it’s time to make real changes in our lifestyle to save this beautiful planet. Many specialists have known this fact for decades, but government’s decisions are slow like snails.

Now than ever we need power and courage of individuals. We need to do right choices in our life, what ever decisions governments do. We need to use our own wisdom and caring towards this planet. Healthy of Earth depends on everyone’s decisions in everyday life.

My father was my hero, he defended our land in two wars and got bullet in his leg. Now it’s our time to be heroes for our descendants by saving this Earth. For us it’s much easier than to be a soldier in a war. We only have to make little changes and sacrifices every day and to learn to be less greedy.

A population of whole World is about 7,5 billion people. It means a huge power of individuals, if all people decide to save this planet. We all can inform our friends, family and co-workers to make a good change now before it’s too late. The change is possible. Masses are stronger in this issue than any leader or government.
