Here, we see the most detailed true-color image of the entire Earth ever captured. Behold, our Blue Marble. On Earth Day, and when looking at this photo, it’s easy to remember the planet is awash with oceans, trees deserts, marshes, plains, and tundras, all teeming with life dependent on the planet’s finite resources.
It’s the other 364 days when we tend to forget. When we’re too tired to sort the recycling. When we’d rather crank the A/C than rely on the breeze through open windows. When we waste, overuse, and under-appreciate.
Instead of forgetting, let’s remember: We share this planet; we share this home. Our Home. This year and every year, let’s reward our Mother Earth’s love. Every tiny step is one step closer.
Happy Earth Day.
