So even though we were shut down i was still going to allow her to do it anyway, because i feel that she really felt strongly about this and she should be supported in tt"we definitelyeed peoplto takeaction before our future generations come on.

We're basically so far tti them down because nobody's taking action abouth, and thereneeds to me more action.

I'm hoping that with all the schools around the countrthey'll feel like people and maybe we should start too."
