Earth Day!

Your mission today - get outside! If it’s already dark, take your parents' hand and ask them to show you the stars. Enjoy the earth today and appreciate its beauty.

John Muir, father of the National Parks and founder of the Sierra Club wrote:
“When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.” My First Summer in the Sierra, John Muir (Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1911) 
Today on Earth Day look around and think about what John Muir wrote in 1911. The land that we step on, the water we drink, the air we breathe, the sun we feel on our skin – everything we see is connected. 

Happy Earth Day!
