When I think of climate change and how I can help I think, ‘I can’t possibly help! What can one person do?! It’s out of my control. It’s out of our control.’
I know there are lots of people out there just like me who feel the urge to make a difference but then I think, ‘we are a small percentage and it feels hopeless’ -but that doesn’t make me feel good! -Just burying my head in the sand! Just accepting my fate! Just accepting the shitty cards that have been dealt us by generations before us not paying attention and letting corporate machines run riot over our lives and our futures!
And what of our future? Does anyone intelligent have children any more? But just not bringing children into the world, is that not just bailing out on the future of all humanity? That is not an answer! I still want to have children and I want to be able to tell them I did something, anything at all to help make a difference, because burying our heads in the sand is exactly what our parents did and so too did their parents. It seems like all anyone has ever done is ignore the bad shit that is going on in the world and hope that it doesn’t affect them…well now it’s affecting everyone and I am not going to allow my feelings of being so small prevent me from doing whatever I can.
I am a drop in the ocean but I am a very powerful drop.
