Today is the day, and there are so many ways to celebrate! And so many ways to get involved. If you’d like to go to the site from the people who are behind the day and the event follow this link.
If you’d like to find a site where you might see what’s happening to commemorate the day for this year, this site is a good place to start.
The days are long gone when we could afford to merely show up at an annual event, see some exhibitions, talk to some folks with some thing to sell and then make sure we’re recycling our household waste. Our situation is beyond urgent and we must let this urgency guide our actions.
It is true that Earth Day, the event, can be a time to raise awareness of the urgency of the Earth’s plight, make common cause with others who’re engaged in the work and rally the community. When these things happen or are enhanced because there is a day set aside and called “Earth Day” it’s a very good thing.
But we must redouble our efforts to defend our Planet with the terrible urgency our plight demands 365 days a year.
