Deforestation Before My Eyes.

You know the times they blab on and on about how we must save the earth, which is going to die anyways, but you still try to because you can’t bear to see animal and plant lives being taken? And then – oh, the irony – they cut trees down before your very eyes?

That’s what happened to me the other day. On the second of September, CE 2014, I watched as they cut down the trees in the (park? forest? nature reserve?) by my school. No kidding. They actually got these really huge machines which had a claw…

Grabbed the trees the way you could grab a bunch of straws…

And squished them. Yes. THEY REALLY DID SQUISH THE TREES.

Seriously. The only thing that separated our campus from them was a thin wire fence, and all us students from Freshmen to Juniors and Sophomores to Seniors just watched, aghast. We had squirrels from those trees run into school sometimes, and kingfishers came flying in, too. Then there was the occasional eagle…

I know the squirrels can run and hide for all I care (GOOD LUCK SQUIRRELS!) but what about BABY SQUIRRELS IN THE TREE ITSELF? AND BABY BIRDS, AND EVRYTHING ELSE? WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?
I don’t care if you need space to build more amenities and homes. Really. But building more amenities and homes on the animals’ homes? No. That isn’t fair. At all.

I really wish they could stop doing this bulls*** and actually help to save the environment, because no amount of paper you put into the recycling bin, no amount of lectures you’re going to give us students about how we must protect our dying earth is ever going to bring back those baby squirrels, birds, plants and trees. Ever.
