How about a holiday celebrating our kinship with nature and membership in the global community?

Today we Americans commemorate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, which declared our independence from Great Britain, and and it is good that we do so. However, I would suggest that to balance things, we declare a holiday celebrating human kind's interdependence within the ecological web of relationships as well as our membership in community at home and around the world.

Can you imagine a day of fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, political speeches, etc. celebrating our kinship with nature and our love and respect for all who inhabit our global neighborhood?
