BLAST FROM THE PAST EARTH DAY 2012
Our earth is the only home we will ever have. We cannot get married and move away or change jobs and move on to another place. We also cannot take a vacation from it so we had better enjoy what we have; and since we can’t move on we need to protect it.
Have you ever explored the depths of its oceans and marveled at its unique creatures? From the endangered manatee to the feared great white sharks the ocean is a constant source of entertainment; it is so much more than any DVD. And we do have several oceans to choose from you know.
Then there are the magnificent mountain ranges located on several different continents. Climbing one of those, even halfway to the summit is a far greater high than can be experienced with drugs or alcohol. Even more thrilling is climbing an active volcano!
Our “home” provides us with the hottest of hot and the coldest of cold. The bitter cold of the Arctic is in vast contrast to the heat of our earth’s deserts.
Regardless of where you claim is your “home” it truly is just a residence because in reality we all share the same home, Earth, so treat it as such. Be proud of your “home”, protect it and take care of your assets, as you would your residence. I am sure most people don’t throw their garbage around their yard or think that someone else will take care of it for them. For many bigger or more is better, wanting to “super-size” but what we need to do is “reduce, reuse and recycle.”
After all you may want to pass your “home” on as an inheritance to your children and grandchildren.
So remember ...
