Comments on: Nature, Motherhood and Mother Earth Celebrating Nature during Hispanic Heritage Month http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2012/09/nature-motherhood-and-mother-earth-celebrating-nature-during-hispanic-heritage-month/ The EPA Blog Thu, 30 Jul 2015 11:15:11 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.1 By: pier http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2012/09/nature-motherhood-and-mother-earth-celebrating-nature-during-hispanic-heritage-month/#comment-24007 Thu, 20 Mar 2014 06:30:41 +0000 http://blog.epa.gov/blog/?p=16141#comment-24007 I think people take for granted all that nature offers us. I feel we should approach our future in with a full sustainable way: teaching our kids, giving good examples every day and provide them always eco-friendly products, wood products bio-foods, and similar everyday products. So we can leave a beautiful planet for future generations.

These days, I feel as though people take for granted all that nature offers us–clear blue skies to gaze upon, green grass to play in, and clean water in which to swim. The national dialogue around protecting the environment unfortunately lacks this tone of respect and awe at the beauty of nature, and for some reason it frames the destruction of the earth as a necessary sacrifice for our development. I feel as though if we were to approach our future as a human race in a more sustainable way, we would not only benefit now from less pollution and destruction of the environment, but also in the future so that we can leave a beautiful earth for future generations to enjoy.

For some reason, we forget that the earth provides the most basic and essential goods for us to enjoy–trees to climb, grass to lay in, lakes and oceans to swim in–and we instead take advantage of those resources in an unsustainable manner. Although I am not of Hispanic origin, I greatly respect the cultural traditions that regard Mother Nature with the honor that she deserves. It’s important to never take for granted our natural resources, and to pass on this respect for the earth to the next generation.

Un saludos desde Chile.

Atte.
