I hate to admit this, but normally i am pretty “doom and gloom” about this world on which we live. i see evidence of the abuse that we heap on our planet. when i return home to Appalachia, i look at what once were the majestic mountains that i loved while growing up, and they have been raped of their crowns, beheaded, even, in the name of greed and short sightedness for the coal that pollutes our planet. Glaciers are melting, species are disappearing, people are wearing masks to keep the air out of their lungs.
But today is earth day, and i am going to rejoyce in her beauty. i am taking the dogs to the park for a picnic, i’m going to inhale the clear air (after i take my allergy pill), and i’m going to do what i can to preserve some natural resources. (i bought the cutest little 2-wheeled shopping tote so i can walk to do my shopping easier).
ways, that we may learn from and use for our future.
