The ocean. The strongest thing in the world. It can kill you with one wave, one swish, one movement. It ranges from shallow shores to depths so deep even mankind’s high tech machines can’t reach the bottom. It covers the world, essential to life, not just for animals living there, but also for us. And yet, we treat it like garbage. Not metaphorically. We actually treat it as a dumping ground for things of no use to us anymore. Now if the roles were reversed, the government would have no trouble actually paying attention to it. But it’s not like that. Instead we are polluting the waters, killing thousands of animals every day. And one day, just one day, you will go to the Bahamas to swim in crystal clear water, but it won’t be blue anymore. And in a blink of the eye, the world will end, and we can’t blame anyone but ourselves.
