Dear World...

Dear World,

For the past 23 years, you sheltered me with kindness. You provided me with air so that I can breath. You gave me light so that I will be able to do things that I need and want. You bring darkness to remind me that it's time to rest my weary body and prepare for the coming of new light. You even spared me from your threats that my brethren have experienced and are experiencing right now.

Oh my dear world, thank you for showing me how wonderful it is to be under your protection. But despite of what you did for me, sometimes I am taking you for granted. I know, like others, I also played some roles in your deterioration. It is possible that I have used cosmetic products that contain ingredients harmful to you. And though I am not involved in illegal logging or any sort of cutting trees activity, I am fully aware that I benefited from it. I benefit from using wooden furniture, I ate foods cooked using coals and of course, I am no stranger to pencil and paper. I also use plastic bags and sometimes, these plastic bags are burned along with dried leaves, branches of trees and other things that were once useful and valued.

With that, I am very sorry. I know I cannot change others dramatically so I started in my own little way. I promised to become serious in my attempts to minimize using things that can pose danger to you. I started living with the 3R rule in mind; reduce the amount and toxicity of trash I throw away, reuse containers, plastic wrappers and products and recycle as much as possible and buy products with recycled content.

I am hoping that others will give adequate attention and effort to save you - to bring back your luster and health. May the recent tragedies serve as an eye-opener, a wake up call to people around the globe. I will not beg you not to send anymore disaster but I am asking you to please spare those who are innocent, those who are not in any way involved in your destruction, those who have not provoked you to send such calamities. They do not deserve to be punished from other people's mistakes.

If you think that I deserve to be punished as well, so be it. I will gladly pay for what I did to you. I'd rather choose to disappear in the face of this planet than to see you vanish and leave us all homeless. You are irreplaceable.

Thank you.
