Just got to give the keynote opening to #EarthDay at the beautiful cool progressive Shining Mountain to groggy middle and high school heroines and heroes.

If we persist in our attachment to being right—to comfort—to selfishness—we will all pay the price. And soon, not just later. It’s time to let go to our attachments and persist in caring, in waking up, in being open to changing our minds and habits. ? #climatechange ??♀️ I recently posted a tongue-in-cheek critique of a grand truck that showed no signs of being used as a working truck. I got some, I’m sure, deserved hell for it. But our generation must take responsibility. Especially if we insist on electing politicians who don’t respect science. We are the change—or, not. It’s up to you and me.
