Today, Monday, June 5, 2017, is World Environment Day - a day and a time to reconnect with nature and to celebrate the places that matter most - all the places under the heavens. Connecting people to nature from a backyard to a national park, is this year's World Environment Day theme.
People are urged to discover amazing species in their everyday world, assist in a clean-up of the environment whether it be a stream, river, lake, sea, ocean, trail, urban lot or the foothill of a mountain.
As people reconnect with nature, is is hoped that a better respect and compassion for the environment would ring true and greater efforts would be put forward toward protecting and enjoying the environment, especially in these times of a government inaction to the responsibility of preserving Mother Earth. Here's to the environment for today, tomorrow and beyond.
