Happy Belated Earth Day
Yesterday was Earth Day. I'm old enough to remember the first one back in 1970, when I celebrated it with the optimistic energy of youth. This year I didn't do much more than read about it. I'm not proud of that.
So today I resolve to do something good for our beautiful blue planet. Perhaps I'll pick up some roadside trash (ugly and often dangerous for wildlife), do a better job of recycling paper and plastic, and make my yard a bit more flora and fauna friendly. If we each make just a little change here, and put forth a little more effort there...
Won't that make earth a better place for us all?
