"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." -Martin Luther King Jr.The scariest things I've done in my life have not been in the mountains. The times I've been most afraid was speaking at public hearings, standing up in front of the fossil fuel industry, asking for stricter regulations on coal power plants, or at the Bears Ears hearing in Bluff, UT, asking for permanent protection of the land. These confrontations are tough but necessary, because when we come together, and listen to the other side, we are stronger. Environmental issues are human rights issues. Injustice to the earth is injustice to humanity. We have an uphill battle ahead. Our work is cut out for us. We must come together with love, and climb this big mountain, for the well-being of humans everywhere. Happy MLK day everyone!Photo: @rob.lea
