Earth Day 2014 Celebrated & Hopefully a Reminder to Make a Difference!

Here the Times celebrates Earth Day 2014 through amazing photos from contributors:

Yesterday on Earth Day, April 22, 2014 the Times highlighted photos that they have collected from people around the world of beautiful pictures of this Earth. This photo display was featured on the Times Square Electronic Billboard (that must of been a sight!). To connect to more Time pictures:  Portraits of the Planet for Earth Day

"The pictures that appear below are visual reminders of the Earth’s diversity, from fathomless oceans to glowing volcanoes to alpine glaciers. The only constants are color—and overwhelming beauty. This planet is a never-ending feast for the eyes, which is one more reason why we should try to take care of it, on Earth Day and every day." Times Portraits...

Here's to Earth- the only home we've got! And please giving it thought- what can I do in my small life to make a difference to such a huge planet? And remember if we all try to make a difference, perhaps our small efforts will collide and make THE difference!

Times caption: "This handout photo provided the Smithsonian's National Zoo, taken May 23, 2011, shows Sumatran tiger Damai at the zoo in Washington. The Smithsonian's National Zoo wants to highlight the dwindling number of 400 Sumatran tigers left in the wild by launching an "endangered song" on Earth Day. On Tuesday, the zoo is releasing "Sumatran Tiger," a song from the indie rock band Portugal. The Man. The song was recorded on 400 polycarbonate records that were designed to degrade after a certain number of plays. The only way to save the song is to digitize and "breed" the music by sharing it through social media. It's is being released to 400 participants to share.
