Earth Day at Hiram: Roots of Resilience, Routes to Change
"Our goal is not just an environment of clean air and water and scenic beauty. The objective is an environment of decency, quality and mutual respect for all other human beings and all living creatures." Senator Gaylord Nelson
Earth Day began amid the best of times and worst of times. April 22, 1970 was a turning point in environmental activism along with the unification at the end of an era that saw poverty and war on a regular basis. An oil spill near Santa Barbara, California and protests of the Vietnam War began the start of a holiday that has now reached its 44th anniversary. The goal was to make not valuing the earth a thing of the past. Twenty million people participated in the first Earth Day and since then, 180 countries have joined in the celebration.
