Today is Earth Day

Today, 22nd April, is Earth Day.  It was first observed in 1970 and created to honour the Earth and the concept of peace.  Countries across the globe celebrate this day each year and yet, hand on heart, I cannot see us ever having a completely peaceful world, can you?  War is waged in the name of religion, and cultural diversity is not respected but used to persecute others. We are using up all the earth's resources with scant regard for future generations. This makes me so sad but I know I cannot do a thing to change the world so I will concentrate on my own little piece of the earth, respect it, enjoy it and look after it as best I can.  So many fellow bloggers are cultivating their own little piece of the earth too and I salute you.  Stay true to your beliefs....

  1. Peace on our earth would be so lovely, but then there is hunger and poverty and school for every child, we have so far to go. Can you remember watching Star Trek and thinking it was a perfect world and we could get like it some day, sadly we are no nearer.

    1. Yes, I used to follow StarTrek too and imagine that somehow the world would evolve into a high tech fair and happy world. It hasn't happened yet, has it. Look at the poor refugees trying to reach Europe by boat. They must be so desperate....
