Honor Your Mother! Earth Day, 2024-Charlotte Golf Community, Charlotte, NC

/

The Bible is clear about how we are to treat our parents. The fifth commandment says, “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you” (Exodus 20:12). This commandment, and the blessing attached to it, are repeated throughout the old and new testaments.
In this case, we will substitute the literal meaning of mother for the symbolic representation, of Mother Earth.
A Brief History Of Earth Day
Each year, on April 22 we celebrate Earth Day. The anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement which began in 1970 in NYC. Speaking during the first Earth Day in 1970, Mayor Lindsay of NYC noted that “the business of pollution is the twin brother of the business of poverty and despair.”
The very first event for Earth Day was held in America following a devastating oil spill and is credited as the beginning of the modern environmental movement. Now, every year, more than one billion people across the world mark the event by showing support for environmental protection.
Now, much of the focus of Earth Day is to build a global citizenry fluent in the concepts of climate change and aware of its unprecedented threat to our planet.
Environmental and climate literacy is the engine not only for creating green voters and advancing environmental and climate laws and policies but also for accelerating green technologies and jobs.
Be Kind to Mother Earth, it’s the only place you have to live!
Reduce, Recycle, Refuse, Renew, Be Responsible.
