I feel like I haven’t done enough recently. Which is silly because I’ve been doing a lot in comparison to what I was doing six months ago. But it doesn’t feel like it’s enough. That is a good thing though. If I’m doing more now in my community than I was six months ago, imagine what it will be like six months from now, and then 2 years from now, and so on. I’m just getting started.
Marching for science yesterday with 1,000 members of my community means that this movement isn’t losing momentum. The organizer of yesterday’s march told the crowd this was his first rally. He is a newcomer to activism, and I would bet, he’ll be an activist for life now. He’s just getting started.
We are all just getting started, in fact.
This is why I am so hopeful. If we are all just getting started, imagine what we will do in 2018. Imagine what we can achieve by 2020. We can keep building and growing and learning and by doing so, we are going to make a difference. We are going to stand up and protect our planet. We are going to stand up and protect human rights. We are going to stand up and fight for what we believe in.
We are just getting started.
