The earth is a gift from God and it belongs to everyone. It is full of wonder and beauty. Our common home has been hurt and has been mistreated. We have been polluting the waters and the air by riding in cars, using spray cans, throwing rubbish and animal waste in the waters and cleaning products that get washed down the drain. The earth has been mistreated by cutting down most of the planets trees. We have treated the earth like it has unlimited supplies. We have taken more of our fair share.
