Who’s to Blame?

“Nature can live without people but people cannot live without nature.”

Letran in Bloom

Letranites wake up, stop and look around your surroundings. We are supposed to be the stewards of God’s beautiful creation, nature. The Colegio is located at the foot of the great Mt. Makiling, on the campus there are trees and flowering plants that blooms every morning and you can feel the relaxed ambience. Where is the respect if we keep on destroying “Mother Earth”? Is there integrity? I bet there is no excellence in it.


Students and teachers should be the one taking care and the ones that give importance on nature and its wonders but that is not the case here. You can see students and teachers smoking in front of the campus, sometimes even inside the campus. Where is justice in that aspect? We are armed with knowledge and understanding of what could happen if this will continue. Improper garbage disposal, the use of Styrofoam, endless smoking and many more

will surely result to flashfloods, spreading of infections that will result to diseases, a possible another dengue outbreak, and more. I am not exaggerating things but I am just presenting the possible consequences if we keep on doing these things.

When are we going to stop doing the things that will destroy our nature, our world and will surely result to our own extinction? When everything is already destroyed and devastated? When all your loved ones are gone? Think again! Think green! Do something now and change the world start with yourself and they will all follow. Save Letran, save Mt. Makiling and it is also possible to save the world! This is a collective effort we are all in this together. Start now, and make a difference show them who are the true blue Letranites.
