Not Everyone Knows!

Home Stager with California Moods Inc

I can't tell you how stunned I was when a forty something woman said she had never heard of global warming And quite honestly, I believe she would never have found out had she not dropped by my home Saturday night.

All my lights were out and candles were glowing all over the house. She asked "whats up?". When I told her that it was Earth Hour, you would think I just told her they found a new planet with people on it and she was the last one to know. She came in and sat down anxious to hear all the details.

global warmingHow could an American with two children not know the plight of the polar bear or what the new squiggly light bulbs are for? How can this be!!!

My friend said she does not watch TV...nor does she read the newspaper. (I wondered how many people really don't know about global warming?) I happily explained in the warm candlelight all that I could to help her understand. We had such a nice time sharing what ever popped into our heads after the initial update that our girls said they want to do it again...every Saturday. We settle for every other Saturday.

Earth Day is a world wide event where large cities as well as individuals live without electricity for one hour a year. Why once a year I thought! Why not as often as we can...?

Because of this experience, my family and friends are going to have an ongoing opportunity to share with each other and help the planet at the same time.

Your friend must not use the internet much either.  Google had a special page up all day on Saturday to remind people of earth hour as well.

Nope - she does not use the Internet either. Some people are just not plugged in.

Good for you Sheron to participate and share what you know! I took my hour to dream and meditate! Yes, not only the house lights were out but my lights also! I'm glad you found a moment to connect and share with someone who is now "enlightened!" That is what it is all about! Thanks for sharing such a beautiful story!

Sheron - I believe it to be true. The leader of the free world has just begun to acknowledge that climate change may be a reality.
