Earth Day Thoughts and Quotes

Earth Day is here and let’s all think about being kinder to Mother Earth! I know, we all say we are trying but we need to try harder! It’s about being aware every single day to recycyle, reuse, don’t pollute, pickΒ  up litter, stop the use of pesticides and the list goes on and on and on! It scares me to think of what will be left for future generations. I know I’m not the only one who feels this way. Earth Day is quite popular and celebrated every year. It really isΒ about all of us inspiring awareness and appreciation for the enviroment for ourselves and passing it on to others! I want to share with you some quotes I found for this special day. I’m quite sure this will be an important topic today and many others will be writing a post about Earth Day. So, I feel it best to say it with quotes! After all, we are intelligent people and the majority of us are doing our part to save this planet Earth. Am I right or am I being hopelessly naive? I certainly hope I’m right, let’s think about what this day means! With that said, I give you the quotes and please enjoy them, think about them, too! πŸ™‚
