Title: Greenfaith Climate Rally Speaker
About this photo: “On October 18, 2021, I spoke at a climate rally held by Greenfaith for people of diverse groups to decrease funding for fossil fuels. As one of the few youth advocates at the event, I wanted to bring some of everyone’s childhood memories by reminding them of their days watching Disney movies. So, I talked about a recent movie that came out, Frozen II. Although it was a cute Disney movie, it was actually about climate change. Every scene and theme pointed to the overall theme that the problem has been created by the past generations but must be helped by the current generations. They portrayed 5 main elements which were fire, water, wind, earth, and the bridge between magic and humanity. That bridge is what led me to my faith because I considered it to be the rebirth and reincarnation aspect of Hinduism. Some key aspects of Hindu teachings revolve around the idea of protecting Mother Earth during our lifetime because, in our next life, we will have to inhabit the Earth that we left behind.“ – Shruti Agrawal
