So today, 22nd April, marks the Earth Day. A day to celebrate of our very existence on this planet.
For millions of years we, the humans, are living on the only life supporting rock we know in our solar system. Because of Earth, we humans exist. Everyone knows that but, despite knowing and understanding this fact, we are in constant process of destroying it, with all the power and weapons we have. Global warming, rising ocean levels, melting polar ice caps, unusual weather are just the few issues. Its like setting your home on fire without having any other place to live.
This earth so beautiful that I can’t describe it in words. Thanks to all those people who are constantly sharing their work on Google+, I have seen places of Earth that I may never see with my own eyes. Those places have made me realize that this planet of ours is such a grand gift for us.
Tonight, go out and look up at the sky. Think about all the things you have done on earth, good or bad, big or small. No matter what you did, you did it here on earth, your only home. You have no other, you may know about other life supporting planets but you still can’t go there. Nobody can go there as of right now. So this Earth is the only place where your dreams can come true, where you can accomplish wonders, where every sunrise promises a brighter day, every sunset gives hope for a better tomorrow, where life is present.
So what are you doing for your home planet?
