earth day

Image result for earthday
today is the 50th anniversary of earth day
earth day started 50 years ago here in santa barbara
in response to a massive oil spill that destroyed the local economy here for several years

50 years later on this anniversary
the economy is shut down again this time due to the covid 19 pandemic

a large earth day celebration was planned here today
it has been moved online

maybe we can have it next year for the 51st celebration
by then we will have a vaccine and maybe some meds to use and maybe that third wave of infection will have gone through this area

what a change in the last year and in the last 50 years

the earths atmosphere has improved a lot since folks are staying inside
people in india can see the himalayas from a 100 miles a way
a site most have never seen before

the air in los angeles is the best its been in years and years
i first moved to this area 50 years ago and was amazed at how bad the air pollution was

since we all arent driving as much and other world issues the oil folks some of them are having to pay folks to take their oil
probably caused by greed and the lack of driving we are all doing

hopefully we all can step back today
look towards the mountains in this area
appreciate how clear the air is
take a deep breath and enjoy that fresh air being sucked into your lungs

if you live in a large city in the world appreciate this fresh air
im sure it will return back eventually to where it was before all this pandemic happened

a silver lining if there is one
is that we can see what our earth use to be like

lets celebrate this earth day
may we not have our earth get cleaned up because of a world wide pandemic
because we all recognize its the right thing to do for our earths future survival
