OSaD, D45

Part of the parks in our city are managed by a recreation district that expands across multiple cities. Some trees in our nearest park were infested by invasive insects. The director of the district decided to cut all the trees down—including healthy ones from species that are not vulnerable to the invasive insects—and to remove most of the vegetation surrounding the area. This disproportionate and destructive response should be a lesson for all of us. Do the people who have power today has the wisdom to steward this world into the future we need for our kids? The perspective of our recent leaders has led us into a path of social and ecological destruction and if we want to correct the course in time to avoid catastrophic consequences we need to be more stringent in how we choose our leaders and how we keep them accountable to our goals.
