In my life, there are some people that inspire me. People that come from different backgrounds, but they were in common for their spirit to fight for what they believe and made a dream come true. People who dedicated themselves to make a better world for everybody else. They are Mahatma Gandhi for his life principle of truth and non-violence, Albert Schweitzer for his cares, love and respect for all living things, Thomas Alfa Edison the great inventor of modern science, and Jacques Cousteau for his passionate love for the sea. Sea is two-thirds of the world. I live in Ambon, the capital of Moluccas province, Indonesia, where sea is ninety three percent of the total province. Moluccas has more than ten thousand six hundred kilometers long coastal side. Indonesia has eighty one thousand kilometers long coastal side. The sea and the coastal areas play important roles in our small place. We have many kinds of dishes made from sea product. In some area fishermen grow seaweeds to export. Sea vehicles are important as transportation infrastructure.
Many people are depending on the sea. But I am surprised to see that not too many people are taking good care of the sea. Many people only take benefit from the sea but give nothing except pollutant and damages in return. It is like symbiosis of parasitism. There are a lot of garbage, especially plastic garbage are floating, cast along the coastal side and sinking at the bottom of the sea. I saw also sedimentation of the sea as the impact of deforestation which damages the beach and coastal life. I believe we should give something good to the sea as a return thanks for all the delicious food we eat, nice pearl accessories we wear, a wonderful scene it offers, and so on. Then we can continue to get a quality of sea products and its carried benefits. It is a cycle of life of giving and receiving. I live in the time where the world is getting old. Pollution, deforestation, green house effect, climate.
