Together We Will Fail To Succeed…
Death. Despair. Destruction. These words travel throughout the world every day. They define the bases of societies and peoples downfall. These words have existed all throughout history, their meaning followed through, some caused by individuals ,but most caused by groups of people.
Tragic things happen to everyone, it can not be avoided. Everyone will fail, whether individually, or together. Everything a person does today will not help them in the future. Their actions will only lead towards misery, despair, and hopelessness. A person may think that he or she has succeeded in life, by getting a good career, or having a nice and loving family, but, in reality, their success will end. No matter what the person does, he or she will die. Everything and everyone dies. Death causes people to fail because they can not take his or her life’s accomplishments and successes with them to their eternal life. A person will never truly achieve anything, for a short time they will think that they have, but death will still come upon them. That person might think that they are leaving ideas and items for future generations, but in actual sense they are not. Anything someone does will not be remembered. That person or thing might remember it, but they will cease to exist one day also. With time memories disappear into history. Today in school we do study history, but unless a person does something remarkable, it is not remembered. An average person will not be remembered. Sometimes even the famous person is not remembered after hundreds and hundreds of years. It is because these people will be replaced by more modern people, for they make more changes to the society at the time than the historical people did.
Together we will destroy the earth. This does not mean that we will literally blow it up or anything, this means we will indirectly harm it, eventually leading to our demise. The earth can only supply humans with a limited amount of resources. Once these are gone, mankind will have to think of something to do. Even today humans are destroying the earth because we are cutting down trees and polluting the air. These activities and more are destroying it a little at a time. Mankind is thinking they are improving the world but they are not. They are cutting down trees in order to fit their own needs. They are building structures which is causing pollution, which is destroying the ozone layer. This heat is melting the polar ice caps, making water levels across the world rise. In all sense it is not the environmental impacts that are harming humans it is humans that are harming the environment.
Together we are destroying our society. In today’s society we have multiple wars and violence going on. These wars are causing many deaths among soldiers who had hopes and dreams. The wars are causing governments to change powers, and they are ruining people’s lives. They are causing even harmless people who have never did any harm to anybody to lose hope and die.
Death is what causes people to fail in life. If it wasn’t for death, every single person in the whole world would always succeed at everything, but that is not the case in this life, if someone can succeed it will be wasted. Now, if someone thinks there is a way, though, to not fail in life: they are right. As long as a person believes that they truly have led a good life with good loving people and they believe they have succeeded then they have. The only way a person succeeds in life is if they believe in themselves. Believing in yourself is key to life and true success. Together we can change the future.
