You Never Know
You never know when your last day will be,
So why do we pollute the wilderness and sea?
I remember when our forests were green, and reefs pink,
But now they are streaked with flames, and stained with ink.
We always say we will do anything to help,
But we barely even let out a yelp.
Sometimes I wonder why we don't care,
But people find it takes too much time to bare.
We forget that with every skyscraper we build,
We leave another life unfulfilled.
People think all our problems will be solved,
But they haven't done anything but evolved.
So look around, look at what you see,
Because you never know what your last day will be.
Earth Day is a day on which events are held worldwide to increase awareness and appreciation of the earth’s natural environment. Our organization aims to educate residents on environment and sustainability issues using hands-on, interactive methods. Over 45 different organizations participate in this event, designed to provide a voice and venue to environmental causes. Earth Day Windsor Essex has been celebrated since 1989.
A very special thanks goes out to the Essex Windsor Solid Waste Authority for their continued partnership of this event!!
