Hey there, let me tell y'all about Earth Day and why it's a big deal. It's like your momma always said, "Take care of your things, or you'll lose 'em". And that's what Earth Day is all about. We gotta take care of our planet, or we'll lose it.

Back in 1969, someone said "Remember the word ecology. It will become the most important word in your lifetime". Well, hell I didn't know what that meant. Well, he wasn't just whistling Dixie! We've been ignoring that word for way too long, and now we all are paying the price.

But today is Earth Day, and we need to repent for all those times we wern't taking care of business. It's like a birthday party for the planet, and we all gotta show up and do our part. That Senator Gaylord Nelson knew we needed a day like this, and the first Earth Day was celebrated on April 22nd, 1970. Millions of good folks came out to demand stronger environmental regulations and protections for the planet. It led to the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency and laws like the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act. That's some serious stuff, y'all. Who want to breath bad air and dirty water. Not me.

But we can't just stop there, folks. Climate change is like of those giant monsters that's breathing down our necks. We're pumping out those greenhouse gases like it's nobody's business, and that's causing all sorts of problems. It's like your Aunt Ethel's hot flashes on steroids. We're talking melting glaciers, rising sea levels, and crazy weather patterns that make your head spin. We gotta act fast and do our part to stop before it's too late.

We need to take individual actions to reduce our polluting ways. But that's not enough, we need to make for our governments  to promote good behavior. Time is very short, and all the younguns and old timers gotta  all participate.

We are harming all of the oter critters on this earth. Insects are hardly nowhere to be found in recent years, and that even has a name called "The Insect Apocalypse." This loss of insect life is alarming, as insects play a crucial role in our farming and growing food stuff.  Without these polinating insects, our farms could collapse, leading to a lot of hungry folks.

But it's not all doom and gloom, folks. We can make America great agin like that fellow said.. There are many ways to get involved and make things better. We can plant more trees and clean up behind ourselves and even for that deadbeat Joe over on Franklin street. It's like a party where we clean up the mess before our parents get home. We can also support local farmers and businesses that use sustainable practices. It's like giving a high-five to Mother Nature.

Let's all do our part to protect the Earth and its inhabitants for our survival and all those other God's creatures. We need to protect those farms and woods, and think more about our connection to the problem  and promise to do more. Let's party like it's 2023, y'all! And then get to work.

Hey, It's Me

Down here in West Virgina we like to think we are just as smart as them folks out there in LA or up there in New York or even as smart as some of them eggheads out in that valley they called Silicon. Sure we got some boys and a couple girls a bit slow, but I bet everywhere has got a few. But anyway, we love having y'all, so just sit yourself down and stay a while. And if youns in big hurry then Y'all just come back you here! Bless your heart!
