How do we elect people, including a United States President, who act on and steward the environment?
I’m going to present a plan that I believe can win the next election that transcends the usual divisions that led to today’s political situation, political misery, feelings of futility, and filth that we live in in air, land, and water, as well as our bodies.
The links and images I referred to:

- New York City stops sewage train to Alabama after residents complain of ‘horrific’ smell

Martha Graham’s quote
Here is the quote:
The dancer is realistic. His craft teaches him to be. Either the foot is pointed or it is not. No amount of dreaming will point it for you. This requires discipline, not drill, not something imposed from without, but discipline imposed by you yourself upon yourself.
Your goal is freedom. But freedom may only be achieved through discipline. In the studio you learn to conform, to submit yourself to the demands of your craft, so that you may finally be free.
