If you are reading this in comfort on a laptop or a desktop, chances are you are amongst the estimated 2 billion of the world’s population with access to the Internet.
If you enjoy clean, potable water running out of your tap. You are lucky, because you are amongst the 3.57 million of the world’s population who aren’t vulnerable to water-related diseases.
At the moment, our current human population is standing at an estimated 7 billion. A hundred years ago, there was only 1 billion of us.
When countries are struggling with famine, and the others are living in pure abundance…
As we step into the new year, I wish for us to look into how far we have come as a human race, embrace and protect this planet which holds our homes.
We should look into treasuring the soil we stand on, the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we are consuming.
If possible, we should think about the way we eat, where our food is coming from and the harm that is done to our planet as we put food on our table.
Certainly, scientists can find us another Earth-like-planet out there. But at the end of the day there can only be one Earth, and one Earth only, which we can hold dear in our hearts.
