Clare Dubois invited me to feel my grief along with her and cry for what we have done, for what we have lost already and what we stand to lose, which is life on this planet. Her whole body conveyed the urgency to sequester carbon by stop extracting and destroying (raping) Earth and to start planting trees. Hers is the most passionate plea I have ever heard. I could feel her grief. It reawakened mine but rather than a numb despair I cried healing tears as I walked along the beach…We can channel our grief energy to change perceptions; we can create change.
