What Are We Fighting For? #FridaysForFuture #ClimateStrike

In America, that sentence could be read multiple ways:

  1. What is our cause?
  2. Why are we fighting for something?
  3. Why are we fighting with each other?

The cause is the health of the environment that supports life on earth.

We’re fighting for that because we’re examples of life on earth.

I don’t know the answer the the last question. Why ARE we fighting with each other over climate change?

  1. The climate is changing.
  2. It’s causing catastrophic events all over the world. If climate change isn’t actively causing the events, it’s intensifying them or causing/allowing them to happen more frequently.
  3. If human activity isn’t responsible for the majority of the change (which I think it is, but that ultimately doesn’t matter), human activity can certainly counter-act the damage that we (or whatever) are causing.

So why fight each other? Let’s work with each other and make things better for ourselves and all the other life on this planet!

There’s no place like home.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about people fighting over something.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    My mind immediately flows to one of my favorite protest bands of yore! It’s 1, 2, 3, what are we fightin’ for? (I won’t continue with the rest…but, I fear that portion still applies to what we are doing in Iran, Iraq, and Afghanistan…)
