Out of the mouths of babes …

In less than a year and a half 16 year old Greta Thunberg of Sweden has inspired millions of people world-wide to join her fight for climate control. 

The passionate pleas of this youngster seem to have hit home where others have failed. She appeals to those of us who already believe that it is a critical problem and openly shames those who close their eyes and won't even listen to reason.

I was thrilled to see that she is the pick for Time Magazine's Person of the Year and not at all surprised when Trump, instead of congratulating her, sent a ridiculous tweet telling her to “work on her Anger Management'.

In contrast the tweet from Michelle Obama read “Don't let anyone dim your light. ...Ignore the doubters and know that millions of people are cheering you on.”   

…  and I am just one of the millions !

Agree with you wholeheartedly, Ginnie. How wonderful to see someone so young and passionate. The less said about the ignoramus in the White House, the better. Regina

How fitting that Time Magazine recognized this young person and how unfitting that some others did not.

I, too, was thrilled that Greta was recognized in this way.
