Our Sad Legacy

Our Sad Legacy

To me the saddest legacy that the human race will leave when it has used up our Earth is the elimination of all of the various species of animal and plant life on our beautiful planet. Our arrogance makes us believe that we have the inherent right to take what we want while destroying the ecology of the world as it was meant to be. Sometimes I am not sure that we are supposed to be here; that it was a mistake. The ecology of the world worked much better before we came along to interfere, and change the world in our image. We think that because we have intellect we are superior; based on the destruction of the earth's resources and the degradation of its ecosystems, we are gradually destroying her and that makes us inferior. And the worst part is that just by living like everyone else does in this country, I am contributing to its decline. Saving what is left of our wildlife is the right thing to do not only for our offspring, but also to try to atone for the damage already wrought on the innocent creatures of the world by our weakness of character. Don't they deserve to continue to exist?
