Today, one of the largest Climate Change Protest Marches is taking place in New York City with an estimated 400,000 people marching to save the environment.
This country had one of the most significant opportunities in the 70's to really make a significant difference in creating alternative fuel sources, that could fully reverse the damages to our environment. Instead, the power structure of Corporate Greed, to mainly include the Oil Cartels, negated this, and continued on. We are now Four Decades later, and the damages can no longer be reversed, only slowed, and yet, these same Power Elite, refuse to slow down the process of destruction to this planet.
The reason I know this is during my 9th Grade years back in 1976/1977, I was in an Honors English class, which is now called, Advanced Placement - we were required to pick a poem, any poem from a book, memorize it, recite it to the class, and give a brief description of why we chose that particular poem.
Upon, reading different poems, this one stood out, and resonated with me because it had to do with something important, that was clear cut, with no metaphors, but broke down the significance of what 'we' as a people needed to pay attention to.
To date, I have not been able to find out who the Author of this Poem is, and even back then I believe it was signed: "ANONYMOUS" - but this Anonymous author's words continue to resonate in the 21st Century, and what took place today in New York City...
Thank you, Anonymous... I still, remember.
