As humans ‘progress’ and spread in our earthly quest of constructing roads, buildings and new technology, nature and the wilds are often treated as second rate. Trees, forests, and natural landscape is often carelessly torn up or removed to make way for new businesses, homes, factories, and transportation.
Even near where I live archers of land is clear-cut in order to make way for construction projects that sometimes are delayed or even canceled all together making the destruction pointless.
When we do need to construct something perhaps we can learn from these designers who found a way to respect nature while still accomplishing their goals. It may take a little extra work but future generations will thank us for preserving the world they live on.
Just remember that the earth is not given to you by your parents, it is loaned to you by your children.
