Every April we find that special day called Earth Day. There are celebrations where communities come together to plant trees, groups launch recycling efforts, an a myriad of ecology related activities take place. It is a day when the environment is the focus of awareness, and promoted in the news. And, appropriately it occurs in spring, a time for people to take to the outdoors and plant.
Earth Day has a twofold purpose. It is a time for awareness, and it is a time for commitment. Planting a tree and not remaining committed to its growth is superficial. Of what value is a tree that dies a month after being planted?
