Martin Luther King Jr. said, “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.” I trust he was right, and it does not turn back. The China virus decisions we make today will no doubt forever affect future generations.
Imagine what the future holds for us with all the new technologies and the many effects they will have on our lives. How are we connected to each other and the office? The present edict of stay at home has had some interesting side news. One, the sky over China has never been cleaner. The second is the reduction in gasoline purchases reflected in low prices; and clean air has made us aware of electric vehicles. Maybe we have a chance for more ‘people transport’ opportunities and will be able to address future climate concerns.
As a pouch making machine manufacturer, we are of course interested in the after life of the pouch. We have the choices of landfill [a big no no for our grand kids to solve], or for waste to energy plants which are a partial solution to the handling of garbage. The new and real solution for our future is the use of the syn gasification plasma plants that produce energy from household garbage. Energy can be created from processing the plastic waste on land and from the ocean.
Looking ahead to the future, 8 billion more folks are forecast to be on this planet in the next 10 years. It will become more and more crowded, we will be closely connected physically and will have to treat each other with more consideration.
Whether you’re a partner, friend, parent, leader, teacher, politician or a combination thereof, you will be called to show up and do more good to help fuel a better version of the world we live in. As Gandhi so eloquently said, “You will find yourself if you lose yourself in the service of others.”
Envision us making in2itiv™ hand sanitizer for this last month and how your efforts helped the lives of others and the world we live in. When I think about where we can do more good in the future, the following are my ideas:
Let’s work together and embrace the strengths of our differences to build a fairer, safer, more prosperous future for the next generation.
Become a connected community on a mission focused on positive change, no matter the issue. It has proven time and time again that when passionate people work together they bring back light where darkness temporarily has taken hold. We must show and demonstrate more care and concern for the suffering and misfortunes of the elderly who are most impacted by the China virus crisis.
