Today I give thanks to this giant mass of rock and water that is our only home in the universe. Please remember to be kind to it.

Your two short sentences speak to two important truths: 1) Gratitude and 2) Earth is more than "the environment". She is, more specifically, "our home" and we need to be her steadfast stewards.

George, she is indeed our home. I often think of her as what Marshall McLuhan described as "spaceship earth." If you've ever enjoyed a sci-fi novel or movie this analogy makes great sense. All of us, and I mean all of Earth's inhabitants are flying through the universe together. We have to act like a crew and tend to our ship. It's the only one we have and our only chance of surviving the great unknown.
