Every morning while driving to my office, I traverse a long stretch of the city’s high-street. The lovely white flowers on the road’s median sway and dance in the breeze, the little branches bend and reach out—to touch n embrace. They uplift my mood. I ignore the merciless Sun scorching my face, and whistle to the tune of “Una paloma blanca…” playing on the car radio.
The next moment my eyes travel to the median below and encounter miles of disgusting spit. My senses are so offended, I silence the singer and the whistler.
Disturbing thoughts cloud my mind.
Humans damage what humans build. We kill our creations, murder our heritage, and ravage our civilization.
Humans also destroy nature. We ruin our rivers, cut our forests, spoil the air we breathe, and pollute the water we drink. We systematically deface and disfigure the beauty.
We take the life out of life.
And for every havoc, every calamity that we wreak on ourselves—we blame God or Government.
Are we evolving or devolving?
