“The ultimate measure of a man [or woman] is not where he [or she] stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he [or she] stands at times of challenge and controversy." - Martin Luther King, Jr.
Today, climate change poses a challenge unlike any challenge we've faced before. How we respond will define who we are as people. We, as members of our respective communities, regardless of our likenesses and differences, must rise together. We must rise together as brothers and sisters of one earth, of one expansive community, in solidarity. And as we rise, we must make sure to wake our leaders from their current slumber.
