When the first Earth Day occurred in 1970, I was but a sophomore in high school. My first period “class” was Student Government. I was the representative from the Chess Club.

During the couple of weeks leading up to Earth Day, a friend—we’ll call him Ken since that’s his name—came in every morning and tried to get Student Government involved in that first Earth Day. I don’t remember if he was successful. I recently reconnected with Ken on Facebook. He is a minister with the Church of England and lives and works in Germany.

Here is my Photographic Art contribution to Earth Day 2015:

According to Wikipedia, Earth Day events are held “in more than 192 countries each year.”

Which begs the question, “How many more?” One? Ten? A hundred? A thousand?

One hundred and ninety-two is a pretty exact number, so I’m thinking that, at the time the Wikipedia article was last updated, it was exactly 192 countries. Why not just say that Earth Day is held in 192 countries? Alas….

Earth Day events are meant to show support for environmental protections. Sadly, there is no proof that any Republican in the United States supports, celebrates, recognizes, or otherwise participates in Earth Day………
