Henry David Thoreau’s birthday

Henry David ThoreauToday is the birthday of Henry David Thoreau, famed nature lover and author of Walden.  His impact on modern society is explored by the Center for American Progress:

Thoreau laid the foundation for modern-day environmentalism. He articulated a philosophy based on environmental and social responsibility, resource efficiency, and living simply that is as inspiring now as it was then. He believed that to live a good life we must keep the wild intact.
