15 Wishes From BSA To You: Wish No. 13: Give the Kids Props

We’re finishing the decade and we’re completing the year. More importantly, you are still here. And so is our holiday tradition of BSA wishes for the new year.

Certainly there is much work to be done, and we believe that art and the creative spirit can heal our people, our cities, our nations, our planet. May we all look toward 2020 with a clear vision.

At BSA our hearts are full and our minds are untroubled as we look confidently toward these new days- with hopes and wishes for the New Year – and a daily image that inspired us in 2019.

Weird how Greta Thunberg became a sensation worldwide this year because of her personal oppositional campaign against disgusting adults who are callously throwing away the Earth’s future. Weirder still was how many adults (men mainly) had little mini freak-out attacks because of the things she said and did this year, revealing more about them than her, frankly.

The 16 year old climate activist was named Person of the Year, by Time Magazine, and her Gen Z is going to be saddled with the fallout from the endless wars, endless pollution, and irresponsible consumption that is killing off species and fouling air and water. At the very least, we wish that we all would start listening to these kids and give these little leaders proper respect for pushing against this adversity the rest of us have selfishly created.
