Today, 22nd April, is Earth Day! It is a special day celebrated in more than 180 countries, since 1970. On this day, messages are propagated and events held worldwide to increase awareness and appreciation of Earth’s natural environment.
Our beautiful planet Earth is ageless! It was extremely beautiful and wonderful for millions of years! But unfortunately since last few decades it is suffering a lot of abuse from us. Knowingly or unknowingly we are neglecting it and destroying it. We are destroying the rich fauna, flora and what is most vital to our healthy existence, air and water.
With respect and fondness we refer to our planet as Mother Earth. And truly it is a Mother providing us countless bounties! Yet our generation is not taking good care of it.
So today is the day marked to celebrate the past beauty and wonder of our planet and to ensure that it is restored and maintained. It is the day to spread the message of peace and love and keep Mother Earth in the pink of health!
Let us observe every day as Earth Day!
