he first Earth Day, in 1970, was inspired by anger. The nation was a mess. Four million gallons of oil from a blown offshore well were smearing California beaches. Flames leapt from the surface of Ohio's Cuyahoga River.

Here is encouragement.

It is important to note and remember our victories for the days we feel discouraged and hopeless.

The memory of the wins of the past provide the energy for wins in the present and thus protect the
future of our children.

Beautiful, hope human kind invest more to protect its own planet, instead to waste money looking for water in other planets.
