United Nations Climate Summit Opening Ceremony – A poem to my Daughter

An amazing poet. An inspiring & powerful message of hope & promise for the next generation. Climate change is real, but we can make a difference for our children & grandchildren. Thanks, Kathy, for making the UN think & cry!

  1. It’s a beautiful poem, and particularly the emphasis on the need to see other people, and earth. Thanks for sharing, so I could get to see it.
