    I was having a discussion with my husband the other day about how my activism (hope) could be justified in light of my anger/frustration levels and my feeling that we are all doomed already. I could not explain to him why I keep on when I feel all is (or may be) already lost. His argument was, if I truly believe we are doomed, why not relax and enjoy life more? But this IS me enjoying my life – standing up for our people, for the water, and for justice is what I must do to feel like ME. I don’t know why I keep on trying when most of the time I feel like it’s too late anyway, but there must be something in me that believes we could still pull it out…besides, I couldn’t live with myself if I didn’t do what I can to save this planet and the life it teems with.
