Memorable Quotes:

You don’t know how to fix the holes in our ozone layer. You don’t know how to bring salmon back up a dead stream. You don’t know how to bring back an animal now extinct. And you can’t bring back forests that once grew where there is now desert. If you don’t know how to fix it, please stop breaking it!

I know I’m only a child, yet I know we’re all in the this together and should act as one single world towards one single goal.
