MESSAGE TO YOUTH
we, your parents, we were not wise. All our lives, we longed for material things. All our hopes were focused on science and technology, thinking that this would change our lives for the better.
We thought that money buys everything, and technology can replace everything. We forgot the fact that our ancestors survived and lived from our rivers, forests and animals. We have forgotten that life is in every breath, every movement, every moment.
Life is a sip of clean water, sunrise and sunset, the smell of flowers in the spring. Life is all around us, but we do not see ...
We, your parents, have been blinded by technological tools, we have lost sight of the essence of life. Somewhere along this path, we lost our way. We destroyed the planet in our madness.
The essence of these thoughts cannot be expressed so easily. It takes a lot of words, many written pages to point out the truth to you. However, it only takes one look to make things clear. Look at all of our "sad" rivers, lakes and numerous illegal dumps throughout the World. These are the pictures with a thousand words.
We want you to become better hosts and parents than we were. We would like to ask you to create a clear picture of your own priorities and your life in general, and that in your relations with nature you do not forget to love it, and do not make the mistakes that we have made.
Our sincere wish is that you love nature.
