Why I Am Marching

I am marching because I care about the future -- for my family, friends, colleagues, everyone. Because global warming is one of the biggest environmental threats that we will ever face. The path of least resistance, when faced with a crisis like this, is to ignore the threat or pass token measures that temporarily assuage our guilt or placate us into thinking it's been addressed. But to effect real change is complicated and difficult, and it is now imperative. This march is the first step in a lifelong path that we must travel in order to protect and preserve our environment and to begin fixing the damage we have already caused.

We cannot continue to pass on this problem to future generations, we must take action today and rise to the challenge that global warming that is facing us today.
