Earth Hour 2011 – Firstly, it makes no sense paying attention to naysayers scoffing this off. I say do your bit for the planet! Let us treat the earth well, we did not inherit it from our ancestors we just borrowed it from our children. Staying without electricity for an hour, is a difficult task but it could also be the best exercise we could ever do this Lenten season. Think about it, you being part of a global event too!!
No one knows if it is going to save the world or not! However, I am not going to stand in the way of people trying their best to effect a change for the better. In fact, they have my full support. Turning off the lights for an hour will not necessarily stop climate change or whatever it is that ails our planet but it gives us all a chance to reflect on a pressing fact: our planet needs help! Whether we humans are the cause of the problem or the solution, we must try it even if our efforts prove futile.
If we cannot be part of the solution, at least don’t be an obstacle to those trying.
