    When I feel thankful about my life, I will have more appreciation for the world and the world we live in. However, due to the negative impacts of the world, we may not be able to even be alive in the earth due to this. In order to continue to living in this world, I will need to change my  impact to the world which will make be motivated to work for a better world. 
  • Reflection Question
    Food Choose Organic Ingredients
    Many people say that “you can’t feed the world with just organic food.” How would you respond to that statement?

    In light of our changing climate, we can no longer afford to continue using the current methods that harm the environment and degrade soil. Because of this, it is false and ineffective to claim that organic food cannot feed the world. In favorable conditions, organic methods can produce comparable yields, while they outperform conventional ones during droughts or floods. Additionally, organic farming requires less energy and emits fewer emissions while reviving the soil and capturing carbon. Hence, we need organic if we want to reduce the negative effects of farming because farming is significantly impacted by climate change rather than just contributing to it.
