Happy Earth Day!
20 years yesterday, President Bill Clinton and Vice President Al Gore visited the coolest park in the world, Meridian Hill/Malcolm X Park (Photo Gallery (U.S. National Park Service)), in Washington, DC, where President Clinton gave his Earth Day address: William J. Clinton: Remarks on the Observance of Earth Day
President Clinton described a park whose crime rate fell 90 percent in 4 years. That number is now 99 %, and this is what it looks like today. There are signs everywhere that the world is learning to love better.
