To the editor:

Greta Thunberg was announced as Time magazine’s “Person of the Year” for 2019.

She was awarded this honor because of her widespread work in promoting action for climate change. She started striking alone outside of the Swedish parliament building to speaking in front of U.N. leaders, and leading student protests worldwide.

Greta is the prime example of youth leadership and action in today’s generation. We need to stand with Greta and the others protesting to show our support for a call to action on climate change.

The younger generations cannot fight this mass issue alone. We all need to call upon world leaders and government officials to create a plan to fight climate change.

Greta Thunberg is the youngest person ever to be named Time’s “Person of the Year.” In order to push her agenda for a climate solution, we must all stand with her.
