To me, this is a matter of perspective and respect. Earth is the blue spinning marble which we ride on while it goes hurling through the Milky Way Galaxy. At this time we cannot change our Galactic vehicle for a cleaner or newer model. This lack of choice in the matter is not a bad thing but it could become one if we do not start treating our mode of transportation and living space with the respect it is due.
We can and will do better for our living and breathing traveling companion. Here are some things we can all do:
- Mulch your fruit and vegetable kitchen scraps
- Recycle paper, plastic and metals
- Drive less and telecommute whenever possible
- Don’t litter
- Stop smoking — God knows what you are expelling into our shared atmosphere
- The EPA is concerned with the production of CO2 — stop sighing and cut down on the number of times you exhale each day

Celebrate Earth Day today and everyday. Hmm, did all of those people at the Mall walk or bicycle to this Earth Day event?
Remember, we only have one planet and we are its stewards.
