I love Earth Day. It's that one day that people really make an effort to do what's best for the Earth.
Sure, we should do that every day. Many people make that complaint every year, whining that many people only go green on this one specific day.
I get it. I really do.
It's easy to become angry when we work hard toward accomplishing something that many people only strive for on one specific day out of the year.
But that anger isn't healthy.
It's a judgmental anger. It's the anger that fanatics of various religions hold. It's the venom that sprays from the mouths of political extremists, formed from powerlessness.
We've all seen it.
None of us want to be a part of it.
Are you one of the people that gets frustrated by the fact that many people will celebrate Earth Day, then turn around and go back to a high polluting, wasteful lifestyle? If so, try to concentrate on one thing:
Earth Day is the one day that people who normally don't think about the environment stand beside you in caring for it.
That's one day that the Earth is shown more love than on any other. It's a happy, optimistic day. Don't spoil it for yourself by complaining about everyone that doesn't really care. Think about everyone that really does care, instead.
Have a Happy Earth Day, everyone! I know I will.
