When a glacier bursts do we hear our heart break?
When people go missing do we feel our heart ache?
When families cry do we shed tears?
We in our urban settings should hang our heads in shame
For the floods that drowned the cries of the people at Chamoli, Uttarakhand, carried the force of our greed.
The climate has changed; what about our ways?
Can we change now while we hear the screams and feel the pain?
Let’s pledge to change one thing in our personal consumption cycle (whether of raw materials or products) and walk out of the shadows into the starlit night to brighten not our streets but to lighten our imprint on the planet and on the lives lost at Uttarakhand.
Take a step on https://www.count-us-in.org and let’s make a difference together. I have signed up for a step titled Green Your Money on Count Us In. This means that for two months I pledge to only invest in businesses with sound environmental processes and practices. This is my second time signing up for the step. What step will you take?
