EARTH DAY

EARTH DAY

“Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without. “ Buddha

Earth Day is a day designed to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s environment. Founded by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in held on April 22, 1970 and is celebrated in more than 175 countries every year.  While the first Earth Day was focused entirely on the United States, an organization launched by Denis Hayes—the original national coordinator in 1970—took it international in 1990 and organized events in 141 nations. Earth Day is now observed each year on April 22 in virtually every country on Earth. Earth Day is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network . World Environment Day, celebrated on June 5 in a different nation every year, is the principal United Nations environmental observance.

“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.” Martin Luther King Jr.

  1. Entirely agreed. People have become completely and shamefully selfish these days (considering the way society has treated the earth). And praise the gods to that; people like you and me just may be able to “rub off” onto another and give them … some appreciation of the world we live in 🙂

  2. I believe Earth Day is an under-appreciated holiday with great value. I see people are constantly taking advantage of this blue planet Earth we all live on…but I’ve become overjoyed with the global celebration! And I was extremely pleased when I found out about the Earth Hour (http://www.earthhour.org/).
    Happy belated Earth Day!
