Defeat of Big Green

November 15, 1990

We were in the unprecedented position to take a courageous stance in the world, but we did not. We were too lazy to get out and vote. We were too ignorant and lazy to read the ballot for ourselves. We were too weak, greedy and selfish to consider giving up some of our luxuries. We were too weak, greedy and selfish to stop, change and pay for the crimes we committed against our environment.

Instead, we chose to pass these responsibilities on to our children when the price they will pay will be even higher and harder.

They will pay. They will pay through the air they breath, the water they drink, the food they eat and the sun they hide their burning skins from.

They will look back and question us. "Why did you not save us when you had the chance?"
