Today all over the globe we are supposed to be acknowledging world oceans day. In this special day I am not found of how our oceans has becomes.
In 2015 August I got a visit from my very close friend from Denmark visiting me in Ghana. As part of our programs for the monthly visits we had to visit the few beaches we had in Accra Ghana. I was so proud to carry my guest and do a show off with him about our beaches, however to my amazement I was shocked. We started at James Town Accra where this Usher Fort was located, those of you who know this place can attests to what I am saying.
Oh mine ,the water was so dark like charcoal, I nearly thought we were at a pond site. Like yeah, where is that blue serene colour of the ocean? I got embarrassed! As my friend opted to go inside and swim I got more embarrassed and exclaimed! Please don't swim inside this dirty water! But my friend never listened to me anyway, I guess it was because he has missed swimming for the one month visit that it can wait. Later I beat my chest for taking him there.
My point is our oceans are getting uglier! Full of plastics wastes, drains waters, human wastes and what of you. It will not surprised me that years to come when nothing is done about it, our fishes will turn to plastics. Fishermen will go for fishing only to catch plastics.
On this special day let's reflect on our attitudes towards our oceans. Let keep our water bodies clean. Its for our own benefits with clean surroundings. Remember cleanliness is next to Godliness.
