#FriFotos: We Are the World…

This week’s #FriFotos theme is EARTH DAY, and appropriately so, as it’s being observed on Sunday. Wendell Berry said, “The earth is what we all have in common.” We couldn’t agree more. Earth Day isn’t a hollow, token day. It’s a time to reconnect with nature and recommit ourselves to better habits that will improve the world we share. So get outside this weekend (all parks are offering free admission during National Park Week). Breathe the air. And remember to take pictures and leave only footprints while you’re there.

Special thanks to Ritwik Banerjee who submitted this charming photo to our My Shot community.
