just look at these harrowing images of the forest fires in Indonesia taken by a drone from Greenpeace:
i find it crazy how we felt like we were being poisoned little by little each day, but then, i thought about all the others that actually live in Indonesia in closer proximity to the haze. i read that some birds and even children would just drop dead. it made me feel concerned about my own daughter hearing about these things.
i think that more than the greed of the capitalists and the corruption of the people in their government, it's mostly mere heartlessness and lack of empathy that make people turn a blind eye on something so despicable like this. i read somewhere that there's nothing we can do about saving the planet now because it's already too late. but at least, we can still try to save our souls.
