Tomorrow is Earth Day. Since 1970, April 22nd has been set aside as a day when particular attention is paid to the place we all call home.
I have fond memories of this day from the 1970s. As a college student, I advocated for the trendy “earth” issues.
In 2007, two days before my youngest was born, my family (including my then-aged 2, 4, and 6 year olds) collected bags full of trash from the side of our road.
Tomorrow, the six of us will be celebrating the place we call home by helping to clean up debris from both the roadside and the pond near our house and by eating low on the food chain.
While I try my best to “Make every day, Earth Day,” tomorrow will be, as it has been for decades, a time to rededicate myself to being the best earthling I can be. I invite you all to spend time outside tomorrow–even if it is raining–and say “thank you” to the ground beneath your feet and the air that fills your lungs.
