I've wanted to check out St. Louis Earth Day for years now. Somehow, in years past, the timing never worked out for me. This year, though, when I heard that the theme was "Heroes for the Planet", I knew that I had to be there! My friend Aur "Da Energy Mon" put me in touch with one of the organizers so that we could discuss how to bring a Real Life Superhero presence to the festival. Before I knew it, I found myself waking up at 5:30 a.m. on Earth Day so that I could get ready and to head to St. Louis!
