So now it is November…
2020 has been a year full of great happiness and great sorrow. We, as a whole planet, have been through great extremes this year but we have gotten through this together. We did not have a great kickstart for 2020 as it started with a global pandemic. Even though the global pandemic has caused such travesty, nature has been thriving.
The lack of pollution has allowed the skies to become more clear, blue, and beautiful. You can visibly see the luminescent moon dance amongst the stars and clouds in the night sky, you can see it shining in all of its glory and complimenting all the bright, mysterious stars that flood our night skies and leave us in awe. The bodies of water have become more transparent and allow us to have a glimpse into the life of the beautiful creatures and plants that co-exist in perfect harmony in the water. The flowers have blossomed and revealed all the colors of the rainbow to us. The trees have managed to grow and become stronger, helping support the amazing, wonderful, and bizarre animals and insects that depend on them. Animals are going back to their mating rituals of dancing, decorating, singing, and displaying their amazing acts to attract a mate.
We can also witness how individuals of different backgrounds have stood together to fight against the injustices that people go through on a daily basis. We have had the privilege to be alive and be apart of a changing world, for the better this time. We are alive when nature is taking back its planet that we have destroyed in the past, we are alive to witness more equality being demanded and happening for everyone, we are alive to witness a revolution happening. Individuals of all shapes, colours, sizes and genders are standing together to make a change and correct the injustices of our past. Women, people of color, LGBT+ individuals, and anyone who has been discriminated against, ostracized, and been treated immorally or unethically are finally having their voices being heard.
Things are finally looking up not only for the planet but for the society in which we live in. We are being the change that we want to see in the world, we must carry on standing together to help people as well as the planet. We have one planet to look after, one planet to live on and one life to live. I would rather live a life where I know a change has happened and we stood together as a whole to make the change possible. A life where someone else’s everyday life has been better and easier, a life where there has been an active change and people learn how to care for each other and love each other. Imagine a world free of war, hatred, misunderstanding, inequality, classes separating people…imagine a world so beautiful, so understanding. A place where we live in perfect harmony, where everyone is heard, where everyone knows that they matter.
As we approach December time, we also approach 2021. I hope in 2021 things are better, I hope we keep fighting against injustices and I hope we keep fighting to make the world a better place. We must never give up on this planet or on each other.
Let’s be the change we want to see in this world!
