Touch her, listen to her, watch her, enjoy her, and taste the fruits of her goodness. Today we celebrate Earth Day, but the message of what this day represents must be activated every single day. We, the caretakers of creation are not collectively doing the best possible job to make sure this planet is protected and cared for as it should be. Are we annihilating our very existence by neglecting and destroying that which sustains us?
The Earth Day Network, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization is the world’s largest recruiter to the environmental movement, working with more than 75,000 partners in nearly 192 countries to build environmental democracy. The first Earth Day on April 22, 1970, activated 20 million Americans from all walks of life and is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement.
This year’s theme for Earth Day is “Protect Our Species.” As we celebrate this initiative let’s be mindful of the endangerment airborne and waterborne pollution poses, along with littering, dumping poisonous toxins in our soil, and now the growing danger of climate change has on our overall health.
