Lights switched off

March 28, 2009. 8:30 pm. I voted for EARTH!

We switched off our lights and enjoyed an hour of family bonding :)
my little brother was desperate to watch his favorite cartoons but my mom said we should not turn on the tv either. So we gathered outside our house, had fun dancing with our neighbor's music, storytelling and just talked about anything that pops up to mind. My brother's high school classmate passed by our house and told us that we are the only one who turn off our lights to join the earth hour. Quite sad because others don't seem to care or maybe they are not aware, but it also makes me happy that we have been a part of this global event and helped vote for earth against climate change.

"This is a vote made by the Philippines for the earth because we showed our unity for the world to take action in Copenhagen in 2009 where they will draft a post-Kyoto policy where they will set new targets for developed and developing nations to reduce carbon emission," said WWF communications officer Gregg Yan.

VOTE EARTH is a global call to action for every individual, every business, and every community – a call to stand up and take control of the future of our planet.
