Green Acts to save our Mother Earth

I received an email that I would like to share it.

力行減碳333 常保地球999

從前 有一片美麗的大地
海鷗 不見了
企鵝 不見了
海豹 不見了
美麗的生命 正在消失

There was once a beautiful land
Because of Global Warming
Sea gull disappeared
Penguins are gone
Seals are missing
Beautiful life is disappearing
Let us together find hope for our Earth


Master Cheng Yen's appeal:
Protecting the environment is a responsibility that all of us share. I hope everyone can live with greater environmental awareness. It is a simple concept, but if we can all put it into practice, the impact can be profound and far-reaching. Only when our world is free of disaster, will mankind be safe.
