~ The first Earth Day celebration occurred on April 22, 1970, when 20 million Americans across the country marched in protest against rising pollution. The event sparked a movement for environmental protection.
Today, Earth Day is recognized worldwide in 192 countries by more than a billion people. This year’s theme should be Climate Action. The reality took us in a different direction and our mother is cleansing herself without our help now.
I am going to hug my beautiful trees right now in the lieu of tomorrows celebration. Oh, wait. I do this every day 🙂
Make it a very grounding and green day.
Until next time, dear friends.

Earth Day is a powerful reminder of the fact that we humans can only be as healthy as the environment we live in. Thank you, Luda, for this wonderful post!

Appreciate this Peter very much
I have a baby redbud tree that was pulled up as a weed. I saved it from a year ago and I think it is strong enough to go into the ground. It is fully leafed now. I will plant it tomorrow.
