“You Have Stolen My Dreams” – Greta Thunberg

“You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words” – Greta Thunberg addresses United Nations Climate Action Summit.

According to MSN Lifestyle News, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex’s changed into a cornflower blue shirt dress, latter designed by Veronica Beard, with black Castañer espadrilles wedges (Latter, for the benefit of you great unwashed, are I understand a kind of woven wedge heeled sandal), while visiting in Cape Town, South Africa, this week.

On the same day, I exchanged my dirty blue jeans for a coal black trousers displaying razor sharp creases on both legs, same also showing distinctive Dunnes Stores, Thurles, labels. An unimpressed MSN Lifestyle News for some reason failed to notice my clothing change.

Not to worry, they also failed to notice that the simple, pink-red, cotton dress, worn so elegantly by the 16-year-old, Viking, teenager Ms Greta Thunberg, latter who opened the 2019 United Nations Climate Action Summit, convened by UN Secretary-General Mr Antonio Guterres.

“Nature is angry. And we fool ourselves if we think we can fool nature, because nature always strikes back, and around the world nature is striking back with fury,” Mr Guterres stated, having already warned governments ahead of this Summit that they would have to offer action plans, in order to qualify to speak at the 2019 Summit; latter aimed at boosting the already agreed 2015 Paris Global Warming Agreement.

“Out of the mouth of babes and suckling’s hast thou ordained strength” – Psalm 8 : Verse 2.

“We will be watching you”, was Ms Thunberg’s main message to the Climate Action Summit attendees. Some of our, so called, world leaders in attendance and to their inordinate shame, sniggered.

Undeterred, the Swedish environmental activist Ms Thunberg, with clear diction, continued to chastise world leaders in attendance; “This is all wrong. I shouldn’t be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean, yet you all come to us young people for hope. How dare you?” she retorted with emotional anger, “You are failing us”“We will not forgive you”.

“How dare you?” she chastised, “You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words”

Hopefully, the world has not heard the last of Ms Greta Thunberg, whom here on Thurles.Info we salute and fully support.
