    I was a retired psychotherapist just back from a Peace Corps stint in Africa when I walked 3000 miles across the country with the Great March for Climate Action in 2014. I had no idea what our impact and the ripple effects would be. Still don’t know four years later. What I do know is that we made a difference everyplace we went. But the greatest changes of all were personal. It educated and radicalized me, connected me with a wonderful and diverse group of folks passionate about changing the course of history. I’ve been an activist “marching” ever since. Now, at 75, it’s going to be tougher for me to go the distance, but I look forward to this new adventure with some old comrades and many new ones. My mottos: “Action is the Antidote to Despair” and “Everything we do matters!”
