Today is Earth Day, I was planning to start this post with Happy Earth Day! I decided not to add the word Happy. Why?
Is it really fair to say the word happy at this time with so much pain in the world?
The Earth is infested with a virus that is killing many people, destroying families, jobs, and life per si because of human’s careless actions. At the same time, the WHO, healthy officials, and politicians are dealing with the situation as if it was a game.
So, there is no happy, just Earth Day! I do hope that we can find time to disconnect from the big chaos in the world right now and to focus on the goodness that the Earth gifts us everyday.
I found this gorgeous dandelion in my backyard yesterday. It’s so delicate and intriguing, a work of art from Nature. It made me smile and I felt gratitude towards the Earth, which, in spite of everything the humanity does to it, is still a beautiful place to be.
