The natural state in which life on this planet continues to thrive, despite the hardships we have inflicted, is truly our greatest blessing and teacher. We can look to her for hope, for strength, and for some of life’s most powerful lessons. For she is resilient and strong, and because the ocean continues to kiss the shore, no matter how many times it is pushed away. Plant flowers with your feet, and leave her the way you found her; full of beauty and life. Happy Earth Day!
