Earth Hour 2009

Last Saturday, March 28, at exactly 8:30 pm, we turned off the main power switch to join countries across the globe in observance of Earth Hour. It was the shortest, yet the most meaningful hour I shared with my family for a good cause.

While all the neighbors went on with their usual activities, wondering why it was 'brownout' in this particular house, we explained to the little ones why we had to turn off the electricity for a while. We wanted to instill the significance and impact of the event in their bright young minds.
