Thought it might be fun to post here!

First up, I have an article from CNN that I found interesting. I won't post the article here (has pictures, long, etc). But I encourage you to take a moment and check it out:

Second, I found this on the NASA tumblr page, different photos of the Earth, just for fun:

Here is my favorite of the photos:


Do you have a favorite photo of Earth? How do you try and honor the Earth?

It's good we have a day when we put the earth first. I see the Jedi as defending people who can't defend themselves and I would put our earth in that bracket. I recently signed an interfaith letter to the UN re climate change. It was before I joined here but when I hear more I shall post an update might be somethings we could get involved with. There is supposed to be some sort of day in June. Will let you know the details.

Thank you. I would be interested in learning more about that.

One thing I would be careful about is viewing the earth as defenseless. The earth is not and will be here long after we are. However, how the earth exists depends on our actions. Will it be a place that supports life for humans? That's up to us. :-)

@Jackie, that is so true! The Earth, in and of itself, will be around for many, many, many more years. But, will we be around to see it? To continue watching it and the Universe around us? That is something we must figure out.

@Kol, I love that picture!!!
