Our obligation to our children and future generations

Storms, fires, and floods are happening everywhere, all of the time now.  We in Virginia need to do everything in our power to care for our air, water, and soil so that future generations will not inherit a planet that is falling apart and ceasing to be livable. Our beautiful state should - and could - be a model for the rest of the world. We need to pass laws and policies that put conscience, ethics, and stewardship above greed and power.
