Be kind to this world, for she is our only setting for all of our collective stories - @roamandgolightly 🙏🏼 I was thinking of photoshopping all of the garbage out of this photo... but I just couldn’t do it. As I approached this site with an excited spirit, my heart broke as I looked down and witnessed all the trash surrounding me.
As I stood there in awe at the lack of respect for our beautiful earth, a man came over and threw his napkin over my shoulder into the pile of trash at the viewpoint without any remorse or regret, it just came naturally to him. Like it was no big deal.
My heart shattered. How can we love and travel this world yet turn around and destroy her beauty? What does that say about us as visitors on this planet?
So often Instagrammers glazes over the gritty, “unpretty” parts of the world. Today I choose not to - in the hopes that we all take a moment to acknowledge our impact on the environment even when it comes to simple things like recycling and not littering. I loved @helloemilie’s recent stories when she shared ways in which we can help even during times when we feel helpless. I’ve included the stories in my highlights on @dametraveler and I hope we can all take something away from it. Lastly, please don’t let me post deter you from visiting Lebanon. Littering exists all over the world and Lebanon will still remain one of the most beautiful places my eyes have ever seen so if you have a chance to go there, go but take care of it like it were your own home, because it is 🙏🏼♥️✨thanks for listening friends, much love 🥰✨ #WHPWanderlust
