Earth Day

Today is Earth Day and I like this day. I like that this day is about doing what we can to take care of this beautiful planet of ours. Nowadays there are a variety of days and programs that highlight environmental issues. It is trendy right now, but it is a darned good trend. (smile) May it long continue. I love all of the efforts. My main concern, besides the very real issue of global warming, is that we just simply can’t trash our planet. I guess that all that talk in school when I was a kid during the 70s and 80s stuck about littering. (smile) But as an adult, I know it goes so much further than that, into things about carbon emissions and the like. I am intrigued more and more to find out what I can do to help.

I just wonder sometimes though, what point has been passed and can we do anything about it now? But I guess that we have to do our best to turn back the tide as much as we can through our governments and individually. I can’t tell anyone else how to live, but I love the natural beauty of this planet so I want to do my part. I used to plant trees with my dad when I was a kid, so perhaps I can continue that legacy. After all, trees are beautiful and they clean the air for us. I will definitely find my way to help more and more. Today was our recycling pick up day and Brit Boy and I always participate in that. Tomorrow won't be Earth Day, but it is still an opportunity for me to do better. Here’s to the Earth! (smile)
