Today is Earth Day!
I didn't even know it until my niece, Jehan (an avid but peace-loving environmentalist), texted me this morning, to remind me that "today we celebrate Earth Day".
Here's a little on the history of this special day!
"On April 22, 1970, 20 million people across America celebrated the first Earth Day. It was a time when cities were buried under their own smog and polluted rivers caught fire. Now Earth Day is celebrated annually around the globe. Through the combined efforts of the U.S. government, grassroots organizations, and citizens like you, what started as a day of national environmental recognition has evolved into a world-wide campaign to protect our global environment."
And now, 38 years later -- have things improved for us?
