It’s the new trend recently, everyone is attending, creating or doing activities related to Earth Day.
To be honest, thinking about this makes me sad, not because we do not care or think about our environment (it doest make me sad) BUT because we need a day to remind ourself to think about earth.
The fact that we have celebration “Days” shows clearly how much we are selfish and too busy with OUR lives and unimportant things.
We do remember to check the latest football game results everyday/week, to watch our favourite show every week, to go shopping with friends on the weekends, to check our emails daily, to check facebook several times a day…
How is it so much difficult to think everyday about earth and to be conscious of the greatness of nature and how to preserve it. How is it unusual to dedicate a few minutes everyday to reflect about the environment surrounding us, the blessings we have and to be grateful for everything.
Why would we need a “mother’s Day” when we should think about our mother, thank and love her everyday.
Why would we need a “water Day” when we know how valuable water is and how important it is to save it and preserve it for the whole world’s benefit.
The same goes for so many others DAYS such as friendship, wildlife, woman (that’s even another topic altogether!), tree, any kind of disease…
Some would say but it’s still a good thing to remind people and raise awareness. The truth is yes it is good, but why aren’t we remind ourselves and everyone else on a daily basis, why is this a once in a year thing? Don’t you think it’s sad and we should do something about it?!!
