It is saddening to see such things as garbage dumped in our forests, recyclable goods wrapped in plastic and put out for city workers and wildflower meadows ripped up by recreational vehicles. Everyone of us however, is capable of trying a little harder to protect the incredibly beautiful planet we inhabit. Today is the day to focus on that. Some are doing it at http://earthdaysummit.com/ . Some are doing it at the United Nations http://www.accuweather.com/en/weather-news/record-number-of-countries-to-sign-paris-agreement-of-climate-change-on-earth-day/56844796 .
Most of us are able to think about these issues in our own homes and hopefully add to the small things we can do everyday to preserve humanity's life line.
