“We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.” – Aldo Leopold⠀
Although the US election is still not settled yet (technically), I am very hopeful and happy (along with much of the rest of the world) that the USA will rejoin the Paris agreement.
“The Paris Agreement builds upon the Convention and for the first time brings all nations into a common cause to undertake ambitious efforts to combat climate change and adapt to its effects, with enhanced support to assist developing countries to do so. As such, it charts a new course in the global climate effort.” – Unfcc.int⠀
So in honor of that, here is a collection of a lovely day spent exploring the Montemarte area of Paris, including the famous Sacré-Cœur, a gorgeous church built-in 1914, and as you can see, the vibrant community surrounding it that day.
Even though I was traveling solo, I felt just as much as part of the community simply because I could see how much there was to adore and cherish here.
What we love, we must care for, including our precious planet.🏼🌍
