We make our home a newborn world

Hello Hasan,

First off, as a huge Michael Jackson fan, I am so glad his song 'Earth Song' was brought about again in relation to Earth Day! Our Earth truly has a multitude of wonders within nature. Beauty is simplicity, and each and every one of us should strive to fulfil our responsibility of preserving that beauty. Overall, I love how you incorporated music and musical lyrics into your post and discussed how we should protect mother nature.

All the best,

Helen Ng
