I remember the very first Earth Day. Spring had sprung, and we were laying out on the college campus yard. Music, crafts (to the benefit Mother Earth), talking and new friends. Topics like "Zero Population Growth" and "Renewable Energy" were in discussion. The baby boom was under way to change the world. I would like to think for the better, and that awareness of our environment shall ever remain in the lineup of the sessions of humanity's discussions, everywhere! And let us give thanks to the lungs of our planet, and promise to take care of them for as long as the Earth exists. It is the year of the TREE.
