Happy Earth Day

I took this photo in Marion's woods, just a short bike ride from my house.

Today is Earth Day...a day to celebrate our home.On this day we think about taking care of our world to keep it lovely and alive for the future generations. I love to visit beautiful places such as the woods above, but I also know the world is not beautiful for so many folks. It is more than picking up litter (which I do) or recycling (which I do), but so much more that usually appears out of my reach. 

There is legislation and laws that need to be dealt with along with standing up for what is right in this world. I try to take these baby steps but we all need to work together. How do we fight the Koch brothers? How do we make folks understand? If you have ideas or plans please share them with me.

If we let it all pass through our fingers we will become as the book title suggests, The World Without Us by Alan Weisman. This is a wonderful read in case you haven't read it.

So go do your good deed, but let's think globally as we move throughout this day. We can make a difference. We need to make a difference.
