We need to focus on the message and not the messenger
The past few days I have been shocked by the reactions Greta Thunberg received on her speech at the United Nations earlier this week. And it’s sad to see she’s being attacked as a person just to discredit the message that she brings. And I get it, she is bringing a message that nobody wants to hear. She seems to be blaming every adult for their ignorance. And she’s right. But rather than attacking everyone, she is made at world leaders. Mad because they use empty promises, useless taxes, and ineffective solutions.
I understand that you might have doubts about Greta Thunberg. She’s only 16 years old and she dropped out of school to become a full-time climate activist. I’m usually very skeptical when I see kids acting like adults. But I’m not sure this is the case. Greta is trying to stand up because she is a teenager. She represents the youth that is displeased. And for that, I truly believe she is brave. So let’s stop being afraid of the girl that is confronting us with the truth. Let’s start focusing on her message and let’s start taking our responsibility. Because after all, we are all in this together, we have to solve this for humankind.
