Hello friends it is Earth Day! It’s been 84 years since the first Earth Day but for the average person, what impact has it made? Not to sound like a Debbie Downer but could you remember what you did on Earth Day a year ago? Two years ago? Three? But it’s easier to remember what you did on Christmas or New Year’s 5 years ago. Earth Day is not a time many people remember or know is even happening.

However, today during Earth Day my English teacher decided to take us on an interesting tour of the school. He brought us around to areas we may have never visited before and spoke of a story for each spot. Although each spot was never anything special, he had some way of thinking of a greater meaning behind them. We were told to walk in silence and spent a moment sitting in a big circle in silence, backs toward the middle. The closest thing to nature for me is the local park but I’d hardly consider that a place to get some fresh air. Sometimes, an adventurous escapade into the woods wouldn’t seem like a bad idea.
