Today is Earth Day. A day to remember that this world is our only home. I’ve always had a great respect for the beauty and power of nature. Maybe because I grew up in the country and have always been surrounded by wide open landscapes, animals and people who both love and appreciate the planet as a source of not only income but also great joy and awe. The hard truth is: this planet is dying, quicker than we would like to believe. It may seem like an impossible task for one person to fix but the whole point is that it can only be conserved through the complete and utter unity of mankind. And I think that is kind of a beautiful thing. If we can’t come together for this common goal, then we don’t deserve this wonderful blue spec in the universe. So walk to work, donate to WWF (if you can), eat organic, buy eco friendly products, recycle, support science research and educate yourself. If the earth dies, so do we. Plus, think of all the cute animals!
