    Observed Earth Hour for the 8th Time

    We observed Earth Hour for the 8th time. My kids and I started participating every Earth Hour since 2009. I remembered the first time we participated in 2009. Our family shared a discussion over dinner why we were turning off the lights. During that time, it was already the second year since Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia.

Not that we turn off the lights one…
