Earth Day 2013

I remember Earth Day from elementary school. I don’t think I was given a clear view of the concept because I thought everyone would be wearing tie-dye tee shirts, holding hands and singing “Michael Row the Boat Ashore”. It sounded hippyish and weird, but Earth Day represented an awareness of how important our “Mother Earth” is to all life we know in this universe.
I’m not someone who preaches about global climate change, greenhouse gasses or ozone depletion. What I do believe is this; some day the Earth won’t be here anymore and that our world changes every day. I embrace the tender gift of life being sustained by this fragile planet on which we live. I cherish it. Earth.
