We live on Earth. It's our home.
There's no place else like it.
We may aspire to travel to Mars and beyond, but nothing we have discovered so far even comes close to being the provider of life, of air and water and of all things necessary for our survival. For our enjoyment.
It is our responsibility to live decently – to do what we can to protect this world in order that we can hand off this wonderful world to the next generation.
If we live life like that, then Every Day is Earth Day.
“Earth Day Every Day” has special meaning in this year of 2020, its 50th year.
It is harder to even consider Earth's special beauty and strength at a time like this, saddened and alarmed by the coronavirus in our lives, in other people's lives across this world of ours.
It is time, more than ever, to see with fresh eyes just what has meaning for each of us – family, friends, home, work, play, the earth around us.
It was a former Wisconsin Senator and Governor, Gaylord Nelson, whose
passion and concern for conservation led to the concept of a National Day
for Earth in 1970. His was the inspiration of this grand movement.
Each of us, today, can do one small thing to help make our small place on Earth, North Stonington, even better.
