CW.....Among many many beneficial outcomes stemming from the establishment of the first "Earth Day" in 1970, the U.S. E.P.A. was created which in turn led to the Clean Air~Clean Water Acts.
Establishing April 22nd as "Earth Day," just as any noted and/or important dates, merely give us cause to remember & think about what it all means & what our part is in the cause.
Of course we need to honor the earth if in honoring it we are helping to preserve, protect & improve our HOME/Environment for all living things. Our very lives, health and most all standards depend upon our cooperation and concerns for the earth.
While great strides have been made, continuing efforts, ideas and new incentives need to remain a vital concern and support of better, cleaner, and more life-sustaining earth.
Happy Earth Day to all.......Peace, Paula
