I was there in the midst of the march and rally with Greta Thunberg in NYC. The speech she gave was quite different at the rally compared to the UN speech. She was quite composed and to the point at the rally. I don't know what happened to her at the UN. I had hoped she would be more like she was at the rally.
It's quite despairing to see how slow people are to embrace fighting climate change. I feel her pain and am glad I could help show there is a growing number of people joining the fight. NYC says there was 60,000 people there. I would like to see that number go up at each of these events, even if Greta is only there in spirit. There's a local Long Island event this Friday and I will be there too.
