A World Without Birds

As someone who wants to help save the environment, it’s actually quite surprising, that this is my first time reading the book Silent Spring by Rachel Carson. As the book that started the entire Environmental Revolution for the United States. It actually was not at all what I was expecting. It might have been because I’m not really interested in the impact that humans are doing that affect humans, it did not affect me as much as I was hoping. In my eyes, there are enough people focusing on human health, while I just want to save the animals. They are too cute not to want to save. There were moments where I just didn’t care enough about what she was saying. While we were discussing the book in class, I would mention and think about all the good things she was doing, but at the moment, I just wanted to hear about what was going on with the animals. If that makes me a bad person, I’m not ashamed. I love me some animals.
