Maravilloso Monday-Love our land
Submitted by admin on March 30, 2009 - 10:30 am
We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.
– Aldo Leopold
So true. We are lucky to be enjoying the earth. We need to take care of it. I am thrilled to know that Earth Hour exists and that so many countries participated on Saturday night. (I made baby formula and blogged by candlelight. It was nice). In the UK, alone, over 200 landmarks – and world famous cultural symbols — including Big Ben, the Palace of Westminster in London, and Edinburgh Castle, went dark during World Wildlife Federation’s Earth Hour. More than 100 cities and towns in the UK, including London, Belfast, Cardiff, and Edinburgh to Manchester, Newcastle, Bristol and Birmingham took part in what is set to be the biggest mass action on climate change. Thousands of individuals, organizations, and businesses also switched out their lights and took part in activities such as candlelit dinners to show global leaders that they want strong action to tackle climate change. Many other countries also participated. To read more about it click here.
It’s a start. Let’s all do our part to take care of this world.
