Today we joined thousands of Americans across the country in a march to raise awareness to the practices and policies that endanger our planet. As a child, I remembered the commercial with the crying Native American standing next to roadside trash. I remember picking up trash on my way to school. I remember that we as a nation worked to educate ourselves and change our habits. Today the threat is far more substantial. The science is there, the problem is real. And we the people have the ability to make a difference. We have the ability to elect legislatures that take the problem seriously.
