The fact that we live on a little blue and green speck is an astounding fact to me. I have always found beauty in nature and our place in it. It’s fascinating to think that we live in such a wild, weird, and wonderful planet. I am privileged to be born on the day we celebrate this planet, and all of its inhabitants: from the creatures of the deep oceans to the many cultures and religions of the world, we are still all a part of this little blue and green dot. It is my wish on my Earth Day birthday each year that people will be more appreciative and respectful of our planet— that includes just one day where you don’t litter, go out for a hike, or are just nice to someone. I hope you have a great Earth Day, everyone!
