Yesterday (March 28) from 8:30 to 9:30 PM, was “Earth Hour”; For Earth Hour, everyone was supposed to turn out their lights, timezone by timezone. My family turned off our lights and electronics and sat in the living room in the dark for an hour. Fun, right? Actually, it was, knowing that we were contributing to the saving of our planet. None of our neighbors turned off their lights, and the streetlights and business lights were all on. I think that our area should have formally participated. I was reading online that all across the globe, cities “were plunging into darkness for Earth Hour” (Comcast.net). I’m not saying that we (as an area) don’t do anything green, we just don’t give as much of an effort as everyone else seems to be giving.
Anyway, let’s all give three cheers for greenness and do our part!
