Earth’s Day is on April 22, 2011 and it is the largest, most widely celebrated international environmental event. It’s a great time to learn about our planet and educate yourself to take care of it. Earth’s Day reminds the people of the world of the need for continuing care which is vital to Earth’s safety. We have to respect and teach our kids Earth’s beautiful systems of balance, between the presence of animals on land, the fish in the sea, birds in the air, mankind, water, air, and land. It is a day when every one of us can think and protect the Earth and make it feel good and know that if we take care of it, it will take care of us.
