The 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall is approaching.  

 

President Reagan had challenged Gorbachev to “tear down this wall;” as students we chuckled in disbelief, “yeah, right.”

Walking early evening as shades of pink and blue soak up the sky, a sadness creeps over me as I reflect on passages from “21 Lessons for the 21st Century” by Yuval Noah Harari.

"For thousands of years Homo sapiens behaved as an ecological serial killer; now it is morphing into an ecological mass murderer. If we continue with our present course, it will not just cause the annihilation of a large percentage of all life-forms but also might sap the foundation of human civilization.”

Journeying home from Minneapolis as newly trained Climate Reality Leaders, our vehicle was bursting with talk, laughter, tears and singing as we shared experiences and exchanged notes for planning future actions.

What really resonated with me is the reality of choice. We still have significant choices -- and the legacy we leave future generations will bear witness to our actions.

Earth Day and Earth Month have come and gone; however, climate change -- our climate crisis -- is here to stay.

As a mom of three, one documentary caught my attention a few years ago titled, Normal is Over. Renee Scheltema -- a mom and renowned journalist filmmaker -- begins by sharing why she embarked on a yearlong trip around the world to examine the state of our planet.
