By some coincidence, my hubby and I were introduced to the movie, The 11th Hour, which is produced and narrated by Leonardo Dicaprio, and discusses the future of our planet given the way people are treating it now. The movie is not exactly new, as it was released in 2007, but we only learnt about it recently.

The movie documentary left us with many feelings.
