Nora sat on her porch, her weathered hands clutching a faded photograph. The image depicted a lush forest, vibrant and alive, with sunlight filtering through the canopy to kiss the forest floor. It was a stark contrast to the barren landscape that now stretched before her eyes—a coastline marred by pollution, flora struggling to survive, and a haunting silence where the sounds of wildlife once danced in harmony.
Sarah stood at the edge of the pristine river that flowed through her childhood town. The gentle current whispered secrets of a time when nature flourished, its water crystal clear and teeming with life. But now, the once-vibrant ecosystem was threatened by powerful corporate interests, relentlessly exploiting the environment for profit. The echoes of Ethan's photographs burned in her mind, reminding her of the urgent need for action.
