The fate of my country rests in your hands

Touchy, funny, quirky or cogent, it's the Quote of the Week:

It appears that we are waiting for some senators in the US Congress to conclude before we can consider this issue properly. It's an irony of the modern world that the fate of the world is being determined by some senators in the US Congress.
Ian Fry

pleading for a legally binding agreement at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen

Listen to Mr. Fry's impassioned and tearful plea. He is pleading with the other Copenhagen negotiators to save his island country from drowning under the rising waters of the Pacific.

You and I may not face waters licking at our heels--yet. But unless they get it right at Copenhagen this week, very likely my grandchildren and great grandchildren will. So well may yours. What they need from us at COP15 this week is our collective voice. The clock is ticking but there is still time. Sign the I am ready for a real deal petition. Tell your friends, write a blog post, write your Senators, make yourself heard. This week. This is it. Don't delay. Do it now.

We make peace in a million small ways every day.
