Earth Day

Earth Day


"In a world without future, each parting of friends is a death. In a world without future, each loneliness is final. In a world without future, each laugh is the last laugh. In a world without future, beyond the present lies nothingness, and people cling to the present as if hanging from a cliff.” – Alan Lightman, Einstein’s Dreams
 
Earth Day, working for a world with a future since 1970.
