We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors,

We borrow it from our children! -Native American Proverb!

Happy Earth Day, EX Community! What will you do for your environment today? Well, I can name one thing - Live Smoke FREE! Did you know that 2 million sickerette butts litter the planet every single day?
