We Need To Save Our Planet Earth By Thomas Husnik

I want to tell you about the greatest discovery of the millennium. It wasn’t the Computer. It wasn’t America. It wasn’t even vaccination. The greatest discovery of the millennium happened near its very end.
It was the discovery of Planet Earth.
We were trying to get away from Planet Earth — ever since we had to leave the garden. We built temples reaching to the heavens, to transcend our earthly bounds. Cities to lock out the earth’s wildness, as though we were not a part of it. We told her she was a dark and lowly place that we needed to escape her to reach our destiny. We ravaged her, raped her, paved her. Our dreams were dreams of overcoming Earth.
It was then that we looked back from outer space and discovered something we had never imagined. A shining jewel in the vast darkness. Never before had we known her beauty. The most beautiful planet a mind could dream of.
It was then that we realized everything our spirits ever wanted was here. That we need her and she needs us. Our destiny is hers and hers is ours. For we are one.
We discovered Planet Earth.
We need to save our Planet Earth. Let every individual and institution now think and act as a responsible trustee of Earth, seeking choices in ecology, economics and ethics that will provide a sustainable future, eliminate pollution, poverty and violence, awaken the wonder of life and foster peaceful progress in the human adventure.”
