Strike One

Join students around the world demanding action for a sustainable future.

Starting Friday, September 20th.

AS I PREPARE for today’s second Fasting for our Future, I thought I’d pass this along to any of you willing to get involved, or more involved, in this life-or-extinction global issue. For those not following it, the Global Climate Strike has been organized by students around the world to demand the urgent systemic change necessary for a survivable, sustainable future. The strike will begin this Friday in cities, towns and villages spanning the globe.

From my vantage point, those of us like me who have lived lives of luxurious comfort from the present system of inherited privilege, ruthless extraction and mindless waste owe them our support. An apology also seems in order. But maybe that’s just me. Showing up would be enough, so here is your opportunity.

  • In Reno, the strike will be from 5:30 to 7pm at City Hall Plaza, 10 North Virginia Street.
  • In Spokane, the strike will be from noon to 3pm at at the Rotary Fountain in River Park Square, 507 North Howard Street.
  • Or find your local climate strike action.

Once we start to act, hope is everywhere. So instead of looking for hope, look for action. Then, and only then, hope will come.”

Author: Bodhi Bill is about sharing the songs I've been gifted with. Where did they come from? Two remarkable, life-changing events happened In 1996. First, I experienced an unexpected encounter with a friend of the family who was dying. The impact was so profound I left my career in advertising and became a board certified chaplain, working with the dying. Second, original songs began channeling through me with no warning. This was a complete surprise. Even though I'd played guitar since high school, I'd never considered myself a songwriter—or even a singer for that matter. More like a third-rate folk music plunker. But the songs came through anyway. Since I retired in 2015, I now have the time to record and share these songs. Although they are not "commercial" in style or content, I feel they are lovely little gems worth preserving and sharing.
