Trees
Grass
Oceans

All things living here.
Now we must save the Earth, our home.

With all the talk of the plight of the earth and of global warming it is easy to be lured into a feeling of hopelessness. Succumbing to hopelessness will not help Save the Earth. The antidote to hopelessness is thankfulness. We are surrounded by beauty beyond measure, beauty beyond understanding. Thankfulness for this beauty, and for the gifts of the Earth, and refresh our spirits. By cultivating thankfulness we learn to overcome that feeling of hopelessness that would otherwise paralyze us from taking effective action.

The original idea and of course the purpose of the EARTH DAY, might be something we should all be proud of..although..NOW, it has evolved into something more of a profiteering event. :(

Very well said Alison.
It is an unfortunate truth!
