Earth Hour.......



It was Earth hour last night from 8:00pm to 9:00pm. We were watching TV as usual and Gabriel reminded us that it was time for "Earth hour". We turned off all the light except the digital light from the washing machine and it was all dark and scary for the young man.

We all went to bed early ( Gabriel was excited because he got to stay in our bed!) with Mr.Silvermonk playing guitar and the Young man declared: " Nothing is going to stop me from doing Nothing...." and then he made up a very fast tempo song. Well, it was rather philosophical, a wake up call for all of us. i don't know how he work out the conundrum.

And i hope we bloody will do something now! If we are not willing to sacrifice now, his generation will suffer the consequences.

I, too, fear the same consequences for Kevin and all our children's generation. It's really sad what state the environment is in right now and it's all our (humankind's) own doing.

We did Earth hour here too. I lit candles and we lit a Coleman camping lantern lit as well. I looked around the neighborhood and we were among the only houses participating. At least that I could tell anyway. I was expecting more people to care. Sadly, they didn't. :(
