climate justice

a change is gonna come…

A week late but finally the world has calmed down for a second of two and I have time to reflect on last week’s major event.  What major event is that?  The largest mass demonstration for change to come along in a long time.  When the dust settled the final attendance is estimated to be about 400K.  If you ever want to feel like an ant, this is the way to do it. But it was also an exhilarating celebration of the power of people, just everyday people, not the rich, not the poor, not any one color, shape, age or voice, just people, the most diverse crowd I have ever seen at any NY parade or event.  They came from all corners and many countries. People wanting something better for the world, better for us all.  No debates here for me,  I am a firm believer in science and it was nice to see so many others looking for a change.

Sticky humid at first the weather remained just that edge of perfect never too hot but never bright and sunny either.

No more words….  the journey begins…
