Happy Birthday, Rachel Carson!

For those who are unaware, she is the Environmental Scientist and author of "Silent Spring" who first raised the clarion call in earnest about environmental toxins in the 1960's. She was way ahead of her time, and sadly, these toxins are what brought her to her grave. Her campaign to bring awareness to toxic dumping and polluting was nearly 50 years ago, and in those years, we have all been exposed to unimaginable combinations of environmental toxins, to say nothing about GMOs.

So, Here's to you, Rachel! You dared to speak out to protect humanity and our environment, and there are many of us who have willingly picked up that baton and continue to speak out and bring awareness to this vital issue.
