Earth Day


Earth Day, originally uploaded by innoko.

Poster designed by inmoko on Flickr for Earth Day:

"I think too much of our focus has turned to global warming, while issues like loss of habitat and declining biodiversity have fallen by the wayside. I think the rainforest and oceans are two of our least cared for habitats, so I chose to feature them here".

Let's celebrate our Earth!

Happy Earth Day!

Earth Day -- April 22 -- each year marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970.

Among other things, 1970 in the United States brought with it the Kent State shootings, the advent of fiber optics, "Bridge Over Troubled Water," Apollo 13, the Beatles' last album, the death of Jimi Hendrix, the birth of Mariah Carey, and the meltdown of fuel rods in the Savannah River nuclear plant near Aiken, South Carolina -- an incident not acknowledged for 18 years.

It was into such a world that the very first Earth Day was born. (Earthhday.net)

Heres's a collection of Earth Day related artwork to help us remember and celebrate:

History of Earth Day in a Nutshell : TreeHugger


"For anyone in the green movement under 30 in the US, Earth Day has always just...been. It's existed as a day when you head to the park or zoo with your parents for activities that have to do with recycling, gardening, and saving endangered animals. Or if you're in high school or college, it's the day you go plant trees or participate in a river clean-up and get some extra community service credits. But, how did it start? Really, it's an example of grassroots environmentalism at its best".

Viernes Santo en Sonsonate - Good Friday in Sonsonate, El Salvador


At that point, darkness covered the land. A little later, as Jesus gave up his spirit, an earthquake shook the ground, ripping the Temple veil in two from top to bottom. Matthew's gospel records, "The earth shook and the rocks split. The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life."


The beautiful town of Sonsonate in tiny El Salvador takes pride in its Semana Santa celebration. Let's have a look.
