Witnessing Nature’s Wrath
Long time ago, when the world was pure, and where man only seek natural resources for their needs, earth was a perfect world. Man and nature work hand in hand with to protect each other. It was a world of peace.
But unfortunately, man’s population suddenly increased dramatically. At the beginning it was still good but as time went on, people were gathering natural resources not because they need it, but only because they wanted to. In short, man has abused nature. Man has robbed nature its richness and started to create a living out of it, thinking nature is not alive and would not have the power to fight back. Only to man’s surprise when nature started to hit back on the people. But worse, it took more than what ma owes it.
When man started to cut trees without replanting, and illegal loggers had no time to care, it lead forest to be bald. Trees went very scarce, birds were robbed of their homes and wild animals did not have anywhere to live. This made nature very angry and called for the hurricanes and the storms, because there were no trees, the soil on the mountains went loose ad started to slide down to the area where people live. Landslides today are very usual on mountainous area. Lots of lives are taken during these calamities (or should I say during natures wrath!?). but who are we to complain? Yes we did not directly cut down the trees, but our kind did.
When people started to become careless and threw garbage everywhere, they let it clog on sewers and drains. Now, when nature tries to clean up the streets with rain, it floods. But it doesn’t just flood; it drowns people unto its depths. The water slowly deprives man air and kills.
Aside from that, continues natural wrath leads to the death of plants that produces food for human, therefore, famine comes along.
Our nature is a wonderful gift. We are alive not to be taken care of, but to take care of our natural resources and preserve it. This is where we get our food, this is where we collect woods to build as well as where we gather all the materials we need for survival.
Greediness for the natural resources is never good. Everything we take from nature should be replaced. If we won’t replace it whole heartedly, then nature might come after us to collect our debts.
