I took part in the first Earth Day, back in April 1970. Wow, that's forty years ago! A few years ago I wrote about what happened that day, when I was a university student and went home to three young children. Read that post on my Greening the Blue Planet blog.
On Earth Day in 2000 my seventh grandchild was born. I wrote about Cady's birthday party a few years later. That was a day I spent mostly at the zoo, before attending her party.
Earth Day has usually been a very good day for me, though I don't have anything special planned to celebrate. Maybe I'll hug a tree. How will you spend the day this year?
