Last week students from around Niagara-on-the-Lake spent the Friday of their March break outside town hall, advocating for better treatment of our planet.

The Lake Report would like to commend all of the students involved for showing such a profound display of awareness when it comes to the environment and the world we’re leaving behind.

And of course, the parents must have done something right to raise a group of kids it looks like we can be hopeful about leaving the world to.

It’s something us adults could look to in many aspects of our lives, when some of us can’t even throw our garbage away at the post office — let alone take the time to sort our recycling, wash out cans and bottles, and be more conscious of the products we’re buying.

The Lake Report is honoured to see a generation emerging which is standing up for the planet.

Not long ago in the United States teenagers across the country went on strike to advocate for gun control. And now an 16-year-old girl is being nominated for a humanitarian award.

It seems these days our youth sometimes know better than we do, as their parents spend their time battling back and forth on Facebook about nonsense.

The Lake Report would like to join in advocating for people to be more responsible when it comes to our planet, which we now know is extremely fragile.

After all, in the words of Carl Sagan, everyone we’ve ever known of loved has lived and died on our pale blue dot.
