“Cause it’s our future.
Because it’s going to affect us the most.
And also right now,
mostly it’s older generations
that are making these decisions
and they may have been alive longer,
but we have to live with the decisions
that they make for longer.
And so it is crucial
that we are the ones out here
and that we really do
take our future into our own hands.”
~ Mary Ellis Stevens
