Is it Earth Day or Birthday?
Earth Day is one way of saying happy birthday to our world. While April 22nd is not the day the earth was born, it is the anniversary of the day in 1970 that the United States took on the global awareness to make one day each year a reminder that the earth is a precious gift of life. The message was so well-received that we still have that day today to remind us to take care of what we all share together–our wonderful planet.
Therefore, just as you celebrate your child’s birthday this year, set aside April 22nd to celebrate with your family another year of our collective lives. Talk about all we have accomplished so far as a society and have fun as you think up new and different ways to help our earth continue to flourish for many years to come.
Happy Earth Day!
