There’s a lot to be learned from an event that manages to bring around 400,000 people together.  Getting to be a part of the People’s Climate March was a sobering experience for me.

We cannot build a thriving future out of burnout and exhaustion.

We cannot build a thriving future out of weary hearts, tired minds and burnt out bodies.

But we're certainly trying to, by the looks of it.

I know this from my work as an organizer in the climate movement -- because that's how I was doing it. That's how we all were doing it.
