"All humans are members of the same body Created from one essence"

"Human beings are members of a whole in creation of one essence and soul. If one member is afflicted with pain, other members uneasy will remain."

Thoreau and Earth Day

Thoreau, in his book Walden, writes, “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life” (Lauter, p. 1758) 

We believe like Thoreau that human beings must fight for a healthy environment by developing the philosophy of green living. 

Nature is being destroyed with the construction of shopping malls, suburban and exurban housing, and factories. Human beings should not develop a consumerist ideology but should have a more contemplative relation to nature. 

Therefore, Green living is the solution to stop global warming. We should develop a sustainable architecture, solar energy, fight for water and forest conservation, and recycle. 

Like in Walden, we should grow our own food and live closer to nature instead of polluting it.
