Esther, Age 14
By being trapped inside, are we more appreciative of the world around us?
If we go back into the world in the months and years to come, when hopefully our society has somewhat recovered from the devastation we are experiencing and facing, with this consciousness about the environment, perhaps we will all, including myself, try just a little bit harder to protect this beautiful planet.
This is why this is such an important time. What we choose to do right now and in the near future will, more than ever, help decide the fate of the Earth, for better or for worse. Maybe stepping back is ultimately what we needed, even if the reason we have to is absolutely awful. We needed to gain a new perspective on what we are doing and also regain a love for the Earth that lies around us.
