Great morning. Even though it's not a Friday and it's grey, cold and about to rain outside, I woke up in the best mood. This is probably because there's some stimulating happenings in my near future. For starters, today is 4/20, so happy 4/20 to all the stoners out there. It's also my birthday this weekend & Earth Day, they fall on the same day, Saturday. Earth Day, created in 1970 by Gaylord Nelson, a Senator from Wisconsin at the time, gets stronger every year. There's a big rally and teach-in on my birthday at the National Mall in D.C. The focus for this year will be on the fight against efforts to silence science and creating / supporting knowledge sharing, among other important topics. If you're interested in learning more about Earth Day, how it was started, getting involved and / or things you can do in your home and daily life to protect the environment we all live and breathe in, go to earthday.org.
*Happy 4/20, Happy Birthday to me & Happy upcoming Earth Day, earthlings*
