Protecting the Environment as Protecting the Future

If you don’t know how to fix it, please stop breaking it. You grown ups say you love us. Please, take action. And for me,it is absolutely my responsibility to do whatever it takes to protect my child. When the haze gets serious, there is at least one thing we can do. That is to protect yourself and your loved ones. When I drew this little bear on paper, I was reminded of, when my daughter got sick, all my fear of losing her and all my hope of protecting her. I wish that all other mothers in this world would not have to feel the same.

Now, she has grown up, healthy and recovered, sturdy and lively, and as chubby as before. She is particularly fond of the nature and the small animals in it, but many times I cannot take her outdoor. So in her own little pot, she has been raising a snail. When she wakes up every morning, she runs to the pot and gives a puff to the snail, hoping to help it grow up. She is so much in love with this world.

Tens of thousands of mothers are being pregnant with or giving birth to their children, to whom these rivers, skies and lands should belong. We have no right to consume without controlling. We have no right to complain without constructing. We are responsible to prove to them that a world lit by energy can meanwhile be clean and beautiful. Every time I look into the night sky, seeing this planet rotating lonely, I sense a kind of indescribable attachment and warmth. Someday in the future, I’ll leave this world, but my child will continue to live in it, so I’ll still be involved. And so I stare at it, just like I stare at you. And so I protect it, as much as I protect you.
