Last night we had an earth hour event. I didn’t know what you did yesterday, but I got participate in the event. The earth hour event started from 20.30 to 21.30. Some people thought why must they got participate at that time as it was only an hour, while when they were sleeping, they had more than six hour turning off the electricity. Well, the spirit was to turn off the electricity when we needed it, not when we didn’t need it. The time was chosen because at that time, the electricity consumption was at the peak. If we turned off the electricity only when we didn’t need it, what was the point? There was no difference with the usual daily activity.
Talking about one hour without electricity, I thought it was not bad. You would not dead without it for an hour, as long as you’re a normal person. Most of us complained that we needed electricity for our daily life. We couldn’t stand without electricity. I didn’t think so. Well, it was true that we needed electricity but we still kept doing some activities without it. Take a look a camping ground. We could have some fun even we stayed in the wild.
For me, the earth hour gave me a chance to stop from my routine for a while. I could take a moment to reflect my life and to have a chat with my family members. You see, it was not bad. I wouldn’t have time to do it in usual day because we all had our own business. For me, I thought that earth hour was a good chance to show our love to earth and people around us. That was my story, how about yours?
