Americans Who Tell the Truth
On the eve of Earth Day, we celebrate the birthday of John Muir, who was born on this day in 1838.
“The battle we have fought, and are still fighting for the forests, is part of the eternal conflict between right and wrong, and we cannot expect to see the end of it . . . So we must count on watching and striving for these trees, and should always be glad to find anything so surely good and noble to strive for.”
And now, two centuries later, we receive inspiration from the young warriors – still striving for these trees.
