PROMPT: Ripple Effect

2
    There is so much on this earth to value, in a non-monetary capacity, but also so much to lose.
    We are driving to extinction species we don’t even know about, discarding untold beauty and importance in the face of commercial value.
    We are losing things we will  never get back and never even understand, and their value will go unappreciated until it’s too late.
    We are destroying things we take for granted, hoarding them and despoiling them and forgetting there is a future.
    There are kids in China who have never seen stars, who don't go outside because the air is too toxic, but it is not the sky that is failing them: it's us.
