There is one thing that every human being has in common. We all come from the Planet Earth. You would think we would all care more about the Earth's future then, huh? Since 1970, Earth Day has been celebrated around the globe as an annual event on April 22, on which events are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection and for the future of the good ole Earth.
I could list events here, but would they necessarily be near you? Oh and the events of today are really only a part of it all. My goal is that EVERY day be Earth Day - that we care about our planet every single day of our lives. That we take seriously things like carbon emissions and recycling and global warming. My goal is for us to all care about this place we call home and making sure it will still be able to sustain human life for our children and our grandchildren and their children and grandchildren.
The idea of Earth Day is certainly a good one, and I am not trying to dismiss it. Yes, let's do things today, but let this only be a beginning. Let us work every day to erase our earlier mistakes and let's start really taking care of our planet. We CAN do this!
