Today, April 20th is Earth Day. On this day each year people worldwide gather and mobilize to increase awareness and appreciation of the Earth and it’s natural environment. Living in Arizona and recently Boulder, Colorado I was fortunate to live around beautiful landscapes. It truly was the natural beauty in those places that made me understand that we really need to preserve what we have on this planet. This simple appreciation grew while in college, and I learned so much more from fellow students and friends who were and still are on the front lines of the fight for preservation and sustainability. Yes Earth day is a just one day, but the it goes beyond just today. If we don’t actively take steps to take care for the place where we live, it will continue to get worse. Let’s take care of the planet we live on. Happy Earth Day. Here is a beautiful video of some of the beautifl landscape from where I grew up in Arizona. Again, HAPPY EARTH DAY!
