A message from Joanne Cipolla-Dennis of Dryden…
It has been my experience that when it seems a relentless hurricane is likely to wipe us out, the sun comes out for a brief moment. It gives me ability to have faith, hope and expectation it will shine again and again through each storm.
In addition, the people of Pennsylvania were successful in toppling Governor Tom Corbett and elected Democratic businessman Tom Wolfe, a big step forward in addressing the massacre of the fossil fuel industry.
All around the country, renewable energy is accelerating, divestment is gaining ground, solar programs are creating significant popularity, and growing civil disobedience and continual vigilant scientists, physicians and brilliant legal warriors are some of the rays of sun through these storms.
Keep building. We have a solid foundation built on compassion, adamant and collective commitment. And we will not give up, give in, settle or walk away from the fight to rapidly address climate change… by being the change.
Thank you all for what you do every minute of every day to be the sun through these storms.
