We have just finished our Earth Hour here in Chile. We started with my husband and I sharing sushi by candle light. We chatted with our oldest daughter, while she tried not to check her Ipod to see what her friends were doing in the dark. Then the three of us went outside to look at the stars. The milky way was a blaze across the sky and we saw three shooting stars to make wishes on.
I would like to say we spent the rest of the night in darkness sharing stories, but it is 15 minutes past “lights on” and we are already on the computer and listening to the radio.
Still, if everyone does a little bit, it will all add up.
