Talking of the past, I remember when I was a child that my friends and I could play all day outside, at the street or even at the river. On those days the river was clear and full of live and the street almost empty, now thew river is dead and the street is full of cars.
It is unlikely for the young people to understand the fact that the river was once a good place for kids, a safe place. Obviously for the ones that see the pollution, the garbage that fill the river now, might be impossible to imagine life in the deadly waters.
The difference is shocking, for me is the distance that separate life and dead. And only at this moment we start to understand that in fact my generation (and I have to include myself) is highly responsible for the damage. We had taught that the water was something eternal and the river could take whatever we do… We were so wrong.
Now we have to something, and some of us are doing something, yet the damage is so deep that the new generations will have to fix a lot of our mistakes. I always regret not watching the truth before.
