Some people think where they live is a Birthright, it is a chore, is not where they want to be, and then there’s me who thinks that living in California is a privilege. Living in a state where the majority of the population thinks the way you do is wonderful. Living in a state that does believe the government has a responsibility to take care of those in need is wonderful. Living in a state that cares about its environment before it was fashionable to care about the environment is wonderful to live in a state with a budget surplus and a rainy day fund which started with this Democratic Administration is wonderful. And so living here is a privilege to me. So when I read an article that says that the government of my state is going to buck the trend of Washington to ignore are looming climate crisis, it makes me proud.
