I ♡ Massachusetts

Here is yet one more reason I am so happy to be living in Massachusetts. 

I was privileged to hear three 3rd graders from Estabrook School speak at Town Meeting last night. They have formed a group of Estabrook students called "Save Tomorrow". They came to Town Meeting last night to ask the Town to approve installing solar panels on their school buildings.

In contrast - the Utah State Government has decided that the theme for Earth Day this year is -  "Where Would WE Be Without Oil, Gas & Mining?" 

They are asking K-6 students to submit poster designs highlighting "how modern mining and petroleum extraction techniques and reclamation methods minimize environmental impacts while providing society with the raw materials required to have our high standard of living" as part of the Utah's Earth Day celebration.
