I am flabbergasted at the idea that Earth Day is a celebration of Lenin’s birthday. I was born on this day back in 1938. I always thought that Earth Day was a day of observance for the Earth, not some Communistic icon.

I can now say that I won’t look at this date as a very proud moment, but the same as I do for Adolf Hitler’s birthday on the 20th of April. Both provided a terrible outcome for the people they murdered or had murdered in their quest for control and power. I recognize that there were many others who contributed to the massacres, but to be “honored” as though it was a good thing makes me sick!
