Fifty years ago, April 22, 1970 was the first Earth Day. It marked a watershed in history with millions of people rallying and calling for collective action to protect our planet. It was just the beginning…..
How do we mark Earth Day today, in the midst of sheltering in place? With no rallies or cleanups or gatherings allowed? We begin by giving thanks. We open our hearts with gratitude and love for Mother Earth and for all that she provides, no strings attached. We revel in her beauty and abundance! We go outside and get our hands dirty. We see and feel the natural beauty and interconnection of all living things, and say yes to standing together and caring for her.
What can you do? Despite the Covid limitations, there are still plenty of ways to connect with others, albeit virtually, and actions you can take individually and collectively.
