Earth Day 2004
Saturday March 20, 2004, 1:49 AM Eastern Standard Time
Earth Day is on the Equinox. Nature's day all over the world.
The Peace Bell at the United Nations in New York will ring at 1:49 a.m. EST -- the beginning of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere and the beginning of Fall in the Southern Hemisphere. At the same moment (7:49 a.m., March 20, in Austria) the Peace Bell at the United Nations in Vienna will ring.
One global common moment celebrating life with dedication of heart and mind to think and act as responsible Earth Trustees. We are one human family and have only one Earth.
Peace and the care of Earth begins in the mind. On Earth Day we can think, pray and plan what we will do to restore and renew the wonder of life on our planet. A "New Day" when differences are forgotten as we share the wonder of nature's new life and new beginning.
Radio and TV are requested to provide live coverage of the United Nations ceremonies so we can all participate.
