Re: The Daily Sun story concerning FridaysForFuture on school climate activism. This evening (Sept. 16), Swedish climate activist, Greta Thunberg, and FridaysForFuture were awarded the 2019 "Ambassador for Conscience" award by Amnesty International, the same award as was bestowed on Nelson Mandela and many other remarkably gifted humans.
During the event, there was a call for all parents to participate in striking on Sept. 20 and Sept. 27, but it was added that all parents should become public activists as well on Saturday Sept. 21 and all Saturdays thereafter. I’m one parent who will heed the call.
Time is of the essence in stopping fossil fuels from being released into the atmosphere. We owe our kids everything in order to preserve their futures. Parents, the adults in power, need to take action now and to continue that action until we are no longer at risk. Our house is burning, and we should not leave our kids trapped inside.
