We were marking Ben’s home school work today and stumbled across this piece of work.
The hypothetical situation was that he had to pretend to be a radio DJ, and he was asked to write a short talk about something that he disliked in the world. He wrote this;
“Meanwhile in in the world, global warming is taking place. Ice caps are melting and sea levels are rising.
I almost feel like half the world doesn’t care.”
How astute that he has realised this at age 13. We certainly don’t talk about this subject every day, and mainly I keep my own concerns about climate change close to my chest so as to shelter him a little. Sad, that he feels like our generation is not concerned about one of the biggest issues facing his generation, and what is left of our own.
So, lets do something special for Ben. Leave a comment if you care, so that we can show him that at least a big percentage actually cares and wants to do something to make it better. I am sure that it would make us all feel a bit better, and show the lad some hope.
