Words for the Week

This week we celebrate Earth Day. It is sad that we need to be reminded to be kind to our planet, our environment. This week I am quoting someone who reminds us in a very poignant way. 

      Plant a Truffula. Treat it with care.
      Give it clean water.
      And feed it fresh air.
      Grow a forest.
      Protect it from axes that hack.
      Then the Lorax and all of his friends
      may come back.
      Unless someone like you cares
      a whole awful lot,
      nothing is going to get better.
      It's not.
             ~from The Lorax~ (Dr. Suess)

  2. There's more wisdom in Dr Suess than you can shake a stick at!

  3. So true. It is the simple things that mean the most, matter the most. We just need to be reminded sometimes.
    Thank you for the comments!
