We need to consider how our actions, in affecting the environment, are likely to affect others. This is often difficult to judge; but it is clear that we are the only species with the power to destroy the earth. Birds and insects have no such power, nor does any other mammal. Yet if we have the capacity to destroy the earth, we also have the capacity to protect it. I believe we have an urgent responsibility to do so.
~ HH Dalai Lama ~
I'm a day late...but here's the thing. When it comes to the saving the planet, every day is Earth Day. We can't expect to fix what ails the relationship we have with Mother Earth on one day of the year.
So this is just a reminder (to me, too)...every day must be Earth Day.
