How this river in the U.S. inspired an environmental movement

This river in the U.S. was so polluted that it caught fire at least 13 times, becoming almost totally devoid of life. But over 50 years later, it has turned into a peaceful waterway and a powerful symbol of environmentalism. This is the story of the infamous Cuyahoga river.

    Men can really do good. We just have to think less of just being us without respecting where and how we respond to what surrounds us. The river story is a classic example. It can be reversed and brought back to life just as nature intended it to be. Mother nature is calling upon all of us to save what We have degraded let's all heed her call before it's too late😎
