Once in a life time

I must say I am a big fan of Sir David Attenborough. Almost two-decade ago I first knew the naturalist who is incredibly fascinated by nature. I believe what he has guided me is not only consistently push me burying myself in linguistic field but also mentor me what meaning life I steer towards. Indeed, I feel fortunate that I do not have to be hectic making ends meet or voracious for luxury life, either of which teeters on the brink of non-stop lifestyle.

It is certainly the case that we all have to go through mundane education, settle down benefit-purposed family, climb career ladder pertinaciously and eventually relish in retirement. However, I cannot agree that ignorance is bliss when it comes to our planet. Many an ordinary one seems not to beware of ‘devastated home’ at which we all share the same soil, water and air though various regions may differentiate the qualities of the three essential elements.

Some might argue they are less capable of taking any responsibility of protecting the precious environment. This may be due to the fact that they barely realise how vital role everyone on the planet can play. There are many classic examples I come out with: don’t pick up plastic bag when shopping for foods every time, avoid frittering away on luxury furniture made of endangered species like rosewood or mahogany and even take a quicker shower, none of which is nonsense as long as all are part of our life wherever living in the world.

That honesty is the best policy should not be quoted as a quality of personal trait only but a genuine life attitude.


Sir David Attenborough has warned that "human beings have overrun the world" in a trailer for his new film.

The feature-length documentary, titled David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet, looks back on the defining moments of his life and the environmental devastation that has taken place during that time.

As well as highlighting some of the issues that climate change poses, he also explores some of the potential solutions. In the trailer, the veteran broadcaster, 93, said: "I've had the most extraordinary life. It is only now that I appreciate how extraordinary."
