Wear mask! Why not wear a mask? The corona is dangerous. it makes you dead! These days, more than ever, people around the world are suffering from a common disease. A 5-gram virus that multiplies day by day and changes color. (The coronavirus spreads around the world in only 5 grams, hence Covid 19 is known as the 5-gram virus.) When someone gets infected, this is the first question everyone asks! Is his lung involved or not? Yes, lungs! It is said to be an important and vital organ.
Do not continue reading for a few minutes. Think about this sentence: Is the lung really a vital organ? These days we wear masks, we avoid hugging each other, we pay a lot of attention to disinfection and personal hygiene, we get vaccinated. What are these things for? Or maybe it can even be said for whom? Other than that we do them to be safe from the corona? Yes! I mean the 5-gram virus that we do not even want to transmit to anyone and even more precisely involve our own or others’ lungs.
Hyrcanian forest get inflected Corona
These days, a sentence runs through my mind. Whatever I do, good or bad, I see the result! I imagine my moment instead of the 5-gram virus. What similarities there are between Corona and us. It destroys the lungs and so do we! It attacks the lungs and so do we! It destroys and also does us, willingly or unwillingly and knowingly or unknowingly! You must be wondering how we destroy the lungs? The first thing that comes to mind is cigarette smoke hookah air pollution and other things that pollute our respiratory system. But I do not mean, we hurt ourselves at all. We attack the lungs like a virus, the lungs of the earth. If you look closely, you will see that we have done with the earth what Corona does to us. Rapid viral growth, rate, and rate of transmission and even involvement of vital organs!
The earth’s lungs are the trees that breathe dioxide and exhale oxygen. This is why Hyrcanian forests are called the lungs of the earth.
When Corona took over the world, the only thing that came to my mind was the similarity between us and Corona. It seems that the epidemic and many of the things that are happening are decisions that we have already made by destroying forests. The more I thought about it, the more I came to the conclusion that it’s our fault!
Forests, the lungs of the earth
Forests are somehow responsible for air purification. They convert carbon dioxide into oxygen, but this is not their only role in improving the Earth’s climate. In addition, they help to reserve water. The volume of forests on the planet is decreasing day by day. For example, 20 years ago, the earth’s forest levels increased from one-third to one quarter. At first glance, a reduction of one-twelfth may not be a significant number but think for a moment that the creatures that lived in these areas have lost their habitat.
Note that these creatures include humans, animals, birds, insects, and even plants themselves. Yeah! About 300 million people worldwide live in forests, one-fifth of which are native to forests and the rest of which are related to forest survival.
The amount of oxygen produced by the creatures on Earth has decreased. Even creatures, both animals and humans, and weaker plants have lost their food source. It may not be believable, but forests, like thermostats, help balance the earth’s temperature.
Since the Hyrcanian forests are several thousand years old, I think a piece of our hearts is left in the forests. This feeling probably comes from our ancestors and they also planted a piece of their heart in these forests. It is said that there is a pair for everyone in the world! What happens if there is a tree in the world for every person?
Think about this, what would happen if a seedling was planted on the ground for every person, every love, every death, and every event? No more annoying heat. No area becomes captive without water. The trees do not reach the ground with their hands, but your hands reach the ground and can be the beginning of their survival.
Thanks to this, the trees keep their feet firmly on the ground so that there is no soil erosion. They hold the earth so tightly that no earthquake can shake the water in our hearts. Rivers are so happy to have trees that they always laugh at the water. All the animals and vegetation return, and Golestani cover the design and pattern of the forests to grow under the shade of that plant, the animal builds its safe house and laughs and accompanies a child to creatures instead of a textbook or wildlife documentary. To see with the naked eye.
The forest and its inhabitants shake hands as usual so that you and I can bake bread and not just watch in negligence. To have all of this, the first hand is my hands and yours when we click on the link and house a sapling to choose a part of the forest, a part of life or even a part of our heart, and the second house becomes a place in our heart.
