Today is Earth Day!

This year, I have been finding myself reading and listening to some voices I greatly value. Some are voices that I have listened to for decades and others are voices that are newer to me, but each offers deep wisdom about our earth, our universe, and the roles each of us do and might play. They offer some “cosmic perspective” to quote Neil deGrasse Tyson, and remind us that “a land ethic changes the role of Home sapiens from conqueror of the land-community to plain member and citizen of it” to quote Aldo Leopold. This earth is the only home we, as a species, have ever known, and Earth Day is a fitting time to reflect on the implications of that fact.

Below are links to two videos that move and inspire me, and I hope they do the same for you. Happy Earth Day.
