The Silent Scream

 

Our forests where we rest in the green, cool and breathe in the shade. Nature hosts many living things in peace and harmony with each other. We have to watch with hurt so bad in our heart  that forest fires, sometimes caused by natural causes, sometimes by unscrupulous actions of grotty people. A cigarette butt thrown thoughtlessly, a broken piece of glass, barbecue fires left not extinguished, weed and stubble cleaning fires burned uncontrollably and ignorantly destroy our forests. In fact we know that; climate will change with every lost forest, there will be drought, the diversity of living will be reduced, earth will become unusable, in short, when all the ecological balance disrupted, all living things in the forest will be destroyed. Air will be polluted, water will be polluted, earth will be polluted…

And only the Silent Scream will remain ...
