“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.” ~Albert Einstein
As I sit and ponder the atrocities of the current world that we live in, (correction, survive in) I often come to the question that must haunt every person of the cause… Is there hope to save and replenish the Ocean?
I instantly answer this question with a yes, assuring myself that there must be. That without hope nothing would get accomplished and then it truly would be a lost cause. But recently as I pondered once again, and came across this question I also asked myself, “Why is there hope?” and found this question was much worse than the former.
“Why is there hope?”
By this I mean, why do people still fight for this cause and believe in it, if these horrid acts are still committed over and over again?
This question puzzled me, and never left my mind, constantly poking and jabbing at the enthusiasm of my soul. I finally come to the answer; the realization that I had been waiting for. The reason we all kept hope in a cause and fight that seems lost to the outside world.
It came to me in an instant. The answer, I found, was something I had already known. Suspense bringing you to the edge of your seat yet? The answer wasn’t just an answer to a question. It was the driving force behind everything that I/We do for the animals.
There is hope in the cause, hope for the Oceans and their inhabitants because… our cause is the most important cause. Its a growing cause, and its the cause that will save humans from themselves. There is hope because those we fight for, those we spend our lives and time protecting, conserving, and defending are those who can’t do it themselves.
Hope (as defined by Dictionary.com): to believe, desire, or trust
If we didn’t have hope in our cause… if we didn’t have the desire for the acts of injustice to be stopped, then they would not be stopped. Hope is a large requirement of the cause because without hope, we have no cause.
Every second of every minute, every minute of every day, every day of every week, every week of every week, every week of every month, every month of every year… (need I continue?) our cause spreads farther and wider. More and more people are joining the fight, and making a change. Hope is key, hope is the answer, hope is required, and hope WILL win us this fight for our sea brethren.
