As we celebrate Earth Day today, we recall a very poignant video by Michael Jackson called “Earth Song” that will forever leave an emotional thumbprint on our hearts. We want to share that video with you, but want you to be forewarned that there are portions of this recording that contain graphic images you may find a little disturbing, albeit a very real environmental epidemic. Michael Jackson creatively showed us vivid imagery of global concern about what we are doing to the world. As you watch this video, think about the message behind each scene and think about what you can do to make this world a better place for all of us.
We cannot simply celebrate “Earth Day” only on one day during the year and totally disregard doing something environmentally edifying during the other 364 days of the year. We must celebrate “Earth Day” to commemorate the things that we have done and continue to do in order to save and sustain our planet. This world is a gift to us and you do not abuse gifts. When we neglect the environment, we neglect ourselves. When we abuse the environment, we abuse ourselves. When we help the environment to be positively fruitful, we too will be fruitful in many sectors of our lives. Join in to help fortify the lives of others and this planet we live in.
What about us? What can you do today?
Happy Earth Day everyone!
