Earth Day 1970-2010

Today is the 40th anniversary of the first Earth Day that was celebrated on April 22, 1970. On that day I was a senior at the University of Oregon, about to graduate and return home to California. The  U of O April 22nd campus newspaper included an Earth Day poster (which I still have) to commemorate the occasion.

Today, let us set aside all strife, and celebrate all life on Planet Earth!

Psalm 148

1 Hallelujah! Praise the Lord from the heavens; praise him in the heights.

2 Praise him, all you angels of his; praise him, all his host.

3 Praise him, sun and moon; praise him all you shining stars.

4 Praise him, heaven of heavens, and you waters above the heavens.

5 Let them praise the Name of the Lord; for he commanded, and they were created.

6 He made them stand fast for ever and ever; he gave them a law which shall not pass away.

7 Praise the Lord from the earth, and you sea-monsters and all deeps;

8 Fire and hail, snow and fog, tempestuous wind, doing his will;

9 Mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars;

10 Wild beasts and all cattle, creeping things and winged birds;

11 Kings of the earth and all peoples, princes and all rulers of the world;

12 Young men and maidens, old and young together.

13 Let them praise the name of the Lord, for his Name only is exalted,
     his splendor is over earth and heaven.

14 He has raised up strength for his people and praise for his loyal servants,
     the children of Israel, a people who are near him.
