We only have one Earth


By virtually growing up on a farm, I learned how humans and other organisms interact and how those interactions affect the environment. Early on I saw the detritus left behind by those who came before us. Glass beer bottles and aluminum beer cans were a common sight at the bottom of creek beds. One time, a deer we hunted had plastic in its stomach.
Living in the country has reminded me that humans do not exist outside of nature, but that we are deeply intertwined within it. We must preserve the Earth; it is not ours to destroy. The Earth does not need us, we need her.
