Les Shotton, Byron Bay

I came upon a child of God, walking along the road, protesting about the change in climate.

Kindness is intelligent and intelligence is kindness that sees life as one: that weeps, with species extinction, observes the fading dunes after a king tide – how this winter the ocean was warm, whales in a sauna, the bushfires.

Sadly Mo Mo, doesn’t know, we know, bla bla bla rational economics fans the flames of global warming. And being Trump’s butt-wipe is not the solution.

I say to the child of God; you are stardust, you are golden. Human beings and their children’s children deserve to live in a beautiful garden. I will gladly show solidarity and join you in your protest.
