This is Blog 7 in my A-Z Blogseries:
Greta Thunberg is asking all the hard questions and holding up a mirror to show us our incompetence.
If you don’t want to watch her whole TED-talk, click play anyway and fast forward to minute 9:30 for her final words of encouragement.
This girl deserves the Nobel Prize of something or other. And a hug.
Actually, I take that back.
A hug would be condescending. She deserves a high five.
Or no, maybe what she deserves most is for us to stop congratulating her on her bravery, eloquence and awesomeness and simply start doing better.
The verbal ass-kickings she gives us every time she has the chance, have inspired me greatly.
As I admitted in my confessional blogpost about flying though, I am still more of a burden to the world than I would like to admit, but I’m working on improving.
I hear you, Greta. Thank you for being you!
