In addition to Earth Day being an occasion to raise awareness that every day we should all be doing something good for the earth, I believe that this is a day in which we should all take a moment to reflect on this little blue ball that’s hurtling through space at a mind-boggling speed, and remember that it’s our true home. There is no other. We can change the roof over our heads, but not the ground beneath our feet.
As the recent challenge to life in earthquake zones and the disruption to air traffic because of a volcanic eruption showed us, Mother Nature still writes the rules.
This place that we call “home” before all others deserves our respect and needs to be honored.
Take a moment to pause, think, and appreciate that this little blue ball gives us life. Without it, there would be none.
