    Thank you Almanack for your acknowledgement of “Earth Day” on April 22.

    51 years ago, local people read a public notice in the North Creek News-Enterprise, inviting everyone to come out and celebrate “Earth Day” by helping to clean up the unsightly trash despoiling the roadsides in the Town of Johnsburg. The outpouring of support for that first “Earth Day” was amazing! It brought together all kinds of people from every part of the community. On that occasion, many local people put aside their differences and joined together in a moment of community pride and concern for our nation’s deteriorating natural environment. We didn’t know it, but we were just a tiny part of an estimated twenty million people who turned out to celebrate that first “Earth Day” all over America.

    Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could all look beyond our differences to see the goodness in all? Let’s work together for the environment, for our communities, for our future generations, for the good of all. That’s what the first “Earth Day” was really all about – and it still is.
