Celebrating Earth Day Every Day

Marie James head shotFor each generation, there are some defining moments in history that will never be forgotten.

My children will always have the sad events of September 11, 2001, etched in their memories. My peers and I remember where we were on November 22, 1963, when we heard the announcement that President Kennedy had been assassinated.

For my parents, a lasting memory was the declaration of World War II; my grandparents were deeply affected by the Wall Street crash that preceded the Great Depression.

But hopefully we all have memories of lighter, more uplifting days as well.  

I remember the fervor and enthusiasm surrounding the first recognized Earth Day. It was April 22, 1970 — just as my adult life was beginning and my ideals were taking shape.
