We live nestled into a wooded park that extends twenty miles out of the city and into the countryside. This forested land acts as a corridor for wildlife, and it isn’t unusual for deer to wander into the city.
It is unusual for us to look out the window and see a deer.
I was happy to see the doe, but such came on the heels of hearing about the UN scientific report on the direness of climate change.
The doe in the front yard was a reminder that the earth is out of balance and heading in a bad direction.
Evidence of climate change is all around us and on the news every day. Our failure to respond with aggressive public policy makes me want to scream.
