The gift of nature is perfect. In nature, we can see a beautiful reflection of something divine. The Earth harbors daily miracles: the celestial scenes of the sky, the endless oceans of the underwater world, the diverse and wonderful myriads of life, and the landscapes that are utterly breathtaking. Having been so perfect, what men have done to the world is so much more of a terrible crime. Mankind, gifted thought it is, has marred the once untarnished face and soul of our planet. Our nature doesn't allow us to blend in with the complex order and disorder of the natural world. There is nothing wrong with this; it is who we are as humans. We like to stay at a distance from nature. But instead of following this desire to be apart from the land, we sought to dominate it. And I'm afraid that the cost of this is that the Earth is slowly dying at our hands. People have let their desire for comfort and greed to overrun their ancient respect for the world around them. Men have the arrogance to claim the world as their own, not realizing we are simply children of it. We have no right to divide up the land for ourselves. We have no right to poison the air and water just so we can have petty material things. We have no right to 'tame' the wilderness. We can't cut down entire forests that have much more right to stand than our buildings do. Mistreating our planet like this has caused us to lose much reverence for natural beauty. We don't spot the Earth for what it is: a God-given miracle. While only some of us are guilty of tearing down the land, the rest are guilty of not caring and averting our eyes from the destruction. We pretend it's not happening. Mankind is indescribably wonderful, but it's not more important than nature. We need to learn how to live in harmony with it instead of trying to rise above it. The first step is to truly appreciate nature and all of its beauty. This way, when you stand before a landscape, you won't want to tear it down to build a mall. When you find a rare species of animals, you won't kill them for your collection. When you look at the sky, you won't treat it like empty space to be filled with pollution. When you are knee-deep in water, you won't want to do offshore drilling. The life, health, and last hope of the Earth sit on decisions like this. Do what's best for the world; it's much more important than you think it is. It'll take a while, but we can undo the damage that we have done. Then the Lorax and all of his friends may come back. Best of luck to our great home.
