The Impact We Have On Others - Earth Hour

I recently heard a quote that I found powerful:
"We never touch people so lightly that we do not leave a trace."
Peggy Tabor Millin
I love that!! I am grateful for the reminder that each and every interaction leaves a trace. I've always found that the encounters we have with others impacts how people feel about themselves and in turn how we feel about ourselves. If I only have one chance to share something of myself, I would choose for that one thing to be of kindness. In my recent illness I found a never ending expression of kindness given to me, and with each little comment, email, text message, phone call and card it has made me more determined to gather my strength and give it all back.
So once more - thank you - to everyone!!!
I also wanted to put out the word that Earth Hour is coming!! Take action and be part of this historic event on March 28, 2009, 8:30 pm local time!! Individuals, businesses, governments and organizations around the world to turn off their lights for one hour – Earth Hour – to make a global statement of concern about climate change and to demonstrate commitment to finding solutions. Mark your calendars now!!

8:30 pm lights off? No problem - we've been going to bed early, like we're 80 years old or something.

Thanks for promoting Earth Hour! Another way you can recruit people to the cause is by creating a Earth Hour group on Simply create a group about one action that you will commit to do for Earth Hour and recruit your friends, family, and co-workers to get involved in that action as well. When it comes to climate change, simple actions can make huge differences and Commit21 leverages social media to influence networks of friends, family, and co-workers. Check it out at
