Happy Earth Day world! I could sit here and tell you to recycle and why its important. I could tell you about how we're polluting the Earth and what you could do to stop it. But I'm sure you guys have already heard all these things. I'd rather give you a little inspiration for your life.
I'm not sure when they came up with Earth Day or even why they started it in the first place. But I'm going to guess that the people who started it were some pretty caring people. To decide to have a day to celebrate the beautiful Earth that we live on, together, is something that most of the common thinkers wouldn't be able to fathom. This Earth has been here for billions of years. When the Earth first began its young existence, I can only imagine that there was very little life. So an entire planet that can sustain life is something extraordinary, and the possibilities were endless. But we turn to today, and look at how the human race has changed the landscape of the Earth like no other living being has ever done.
When we look at the way the world is now, I still feel like it has so much potential to be a better world. Right now we have wars, violence, evil acts, and many other horrible things being committed by humans against other humans. As the human race, we are at the top of the food chain because we were given an advanced brain and thumbs. But since being at the top, we have done nothing but be violent towards each other. As history has shown, there will always be evil in the world as long as there are people that drive to achieve power in their lifetime on this Earth. But we need to strive for something better.
I encourage you to spread peace and love everyday to everyone you see. We are all the same race: Human. If you go up to someone you don't know and you ask them how their day is, they're probably going to look at you weird because they don't know you. But that's ok. Because for every person who doesn't want to get asked how their day is, theres thousands of people who need someone to ask how their day is. Every human needs love and positivity. Treat others the way you want to be treated and I promise the world will only improve. Imagine if every person on Earth wanted nothing but World Peace, how easy would life be?
Here is one of my favorite Beatles performances. Doesn't have much to do with Earth Day, but it still seemed fitting.
Just a man trying to make the most of his time on this planet.
