april 22 was the fortieth anniversary of earth day. earth day was instituted to promote ecology. this is a lofty ideal, but i when i think of earth day i think that it should be honoring world peace as well as the ecological factor. we don't want to ruin the planet by not recycling , pollution, smoking , etc, and we don't want to ruin the world with an atom bomb or scud missiles.
promoting ecology without mentioning world peace for earth day is akin to just blaming tsnius issues for the delay of mashiach but avoiding the fact that we are in galus due to sinas chinum.
