I believe that each and every one of us has the responsibility to take part in preserving our Mother Earth. We are living in this world so therefore, let us nurture the gift that has been given us since the beginning of our lives. We need to give something back to Mother Earth for her long years of generosity to us. We have been greedy. We have had no concern of her life-producing nature because we always want to take and take, but we never give.
Intelligent and talented people who study the world are telling us what they’ve learned. They continually remind us that our Mother is getting old. She is dying because of our wrongdoings. But we are the ignorant of who will suffer in the end. When Mother Earth will no longer be capable of giving us what we need. Like protecting us from the heat of the sun, from the floods, from typhoons and many more natural calamities. We are all in danger because we have neglected the importance of taking good care of the Mother who has been shielding us.
I pledge to Mother Earth that I will take part in saving her by doing the following:
- I will practice proper waste disposal by using the method of segregating.
- I will participate in groups that plant trees.
- I will always conserve energy.
- I will always conserve water.
- I will assist in awareness programs concerning mother earth.
These are my pledges, I will hope for myself that I can learn to abide by my oaths so that I can be a help and example to many that may soon follow my simple and sincere ways for preserving my world. So help me God.
It is just about giving back. We owe it to the world for her to be saved from all the maltreatment that we have been doing to her. Save her and we are saving ourselves too. Take away all our greediness. Take a seat. And observe and smell our surroundings. Do we still smell the grass? Do we see the morning fog? What about the birds, the trees, the rivers, the mountains, the people around us? I think it is time to start reacting, to make a simple move on your own.
By ourselves, we can practice. Gradually. a practice can become a habit. Then we can influence our family, then our community and together we can save Mother Earth.
