Every day we wake up on this earth and go about our daily lives. Most of us drag ourselves out of bed in the morning and do whatever it is we have to do to earn a living or keep the household together. We rarely “stop and smell the roses” due to lack of time or a sense of urgency society has placed on everything. We accumulate more trash than ever before and it ends up in huge stinky landfills. We recycle when we can and move forward. Whether we believe in a higher power or not, the Earth is a gift to us humans every day and is constantly showing us its true beauty, if only we stopped to enjoy it sometimes.
The first Earth Day was on April 22, 1970. Earth Day was created to bring people together on environmental issues and protests against environmental deterioration. Its purpose was to raise consciousness about all the environmental issues but also bring people from all over together that had been fighting separate issues like oil spills, pollution, sewage, toxic dumps, pesticides, wildlife, and more. Every year on April 22nd we celebrate our planet’s generous beautiful bounty and petition our leaders to act on the various issues effecting all life on this earth.
