Earth Day 2022, is every day 2022 not just the 22 April, because loving the Earth is not something you can turn off like a tap. Once you realize you are but a passenger on a spaceship hurtling through space at 67,000 miles per hour, you become aware of how precious this world we live on is.
Hikers, by their very nature, love the Earth. It is what gives them the most joy. So, making a special day to celebrate it seems a tad unnecessary. But NO. The word must be spread, and spread it we will.
The message is simple. The Earth must be preserved at all costs, and the best way to do that is with love and peace, not war and loss. Love the Earth, to safeguard its seas, the life support system of the planet. Love the Earth, to protect its forests and the wild things that inhabit them. Lastly, love the Earth, to protect its people. Because saving the Earth, is saving ourselves.
So, buy an Earth Day T-Shirt, Hoodie, or Tote bag for yourself and a friend. Wear it every day (well maybe every other day, or buy seven, one for each day of the week) to show your love and support for our beautiful blue planet.
