There are 365 days in a year and some are more special than others. We celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, religious holidays and public holidays.
Tomorrow, March 27th, is not a special day but a special hour. Earth Hour. Those two words have so much meaning. For one hour, starting at 8:30, every household and business are encouraged to turn out their lights, televisions, computers etc and give Mother Earth her hour to be the most important thing on our minds, so we can focus on climate change and what humanity is doing her resources.
I took part last year and will be doing so again this year. I love the fact that it is proactive. We, as individuals, for that hour can collectively stand together and say our Earth comes first. Because without our Earth there is no ‘us’ and it is time that Governments, Countries and its people start realising this very simple fact. Let’s stop taking, the fresh air we breathe everyday, for granted.
