Lighting the sky
August 28, 2013 | 07:21 AM

It would be nice to be able to go back to the days of not having all the light at night. But in today's world the crime at night not only to property but mostly to human's have forced this world to install more and more security lighting for safety. Yes there a lot of lighting of parking lots and businesses as well but that also is for security purposes as well. It is nice to be able to look up at night and almost believe you can just reach up and touch the stars. But until we figure out how to reduce crime we will have to live with it. Just pointing lights down does not eliminate the reflecting of light upward into the sky. People today are to wrapped up in the need not just the want of money that there is no time or thought given to the natural wonder that surrounds us both on earth or above us. Please don't just lay this whole thing at the United States doorstep as being just our making. I for one am tired of our country always being blamed for everything that is wrong in the world. Remember we are just a small place on this rotating ball in the universe.
