This is the second summer time that we stayed home. I got used to spending a lot of time at home due to quarantine that I forget how “fun” this season is. Summer time is for vacation and exploring new places! People travel and majority go to the beach to escape the summer heat. But a beach trip for me is in the far, far future. With an ongoing pandemic that shows no signs of slowing down and border restrictions still in place, it’s such a hassle right now to go on a trip even if we can do it. And besides, Covid is still waving! We can probably travel safely when 90% of the population is vaccinated and we have what they call “herd immunity”. But that would probably take years!
A few days ago, I watched the documentary “The Year Earth Changed” and it is so moving that now I am thinking of staying put and refrain from traveling for a while so that Mother Nature can heal. Maybe for a year or two so that we can help our planet. If you haven’t watched it yet, please do so. I did not realize the extent of the impact to our planet because of our thirst to see the world. It’s still an eye opener even if we know that somehow our carbon footprint is doing a lot of harm to the planet. I sincerely hope that this major pause to movement will have a major effect to the world we lived in.
