Earth Hour 2015

This weekend, March 28, Earth Hour is celebrating its ninth anniversary. People everywhere – individuals, and businesses, are encouraged to turn off their lights for an hour, from 8:30 - 9:30 p.m. as a “nudge” to help us to be more aware about climate change and its effects in our world. Becoming more aware will make us want to increase our support for urgent action. For one hour, we can focus on our commitment to our planet. We could converse with a neighbour, have a candlelight dinner, gaze at the stars, and reflect with gratitude for all we receive from the Earth.
In a few months, a new global climate deal will be negotiated. On March 28, 6 continents, 120 countries and 24 times zones will be united in an action of turning off the lights to send a strong global message. Earth Hour shows how people can come together for a common cause. For photos and suggestions, see www.earthhour.org

What kept them from not responding to the brutality done to another human being? Can we ever forget that soon to follow we hear “Crucify him! Crucify him!” --such a contrast!
