Earth Hour

Earth Hour began in Sydney in 2007, when 2.2 million homes and businesses switched off their lights for one hour. In 2008 the message had grown into a global sustainability movement, with 50 million people switching off their lights.....for an hour. On March 28, 2009, Earth Hour was taken to the next level, with more than 1 billion people turned off their lights....for an hour.

For a moment, I like you to think about switching off your lights for merely 5 minutes earlier everday. Your actions may translate into saving lights for more than 30 hours a year in fighting global warming.

You have to bring the light

How to brighten up a dark room? The answer is have to bring in the light.

Life is never a bed of roses. At times, we may meet with disappointments and heart breaking moments. What can we do about them? Changing the situations to better starts with your mindset, your attitude. In another word, the darkness is there, you can change the dark room into a bright room by bringing in the light.

One must be insane just by sitting down doing nothing and expect a change.
