International Men's Day

You can't keep a good man down

(This is my husband Steven,
the father of my two sons -- who
also should be celebrated on International
Men's Day, and so should all of our wonderful
relatives and friends -- good men all.)

I was surprised to see that this was a real day today, and
certainly my man deserved the honour of being recognized
as he spent a lot of time today trying to create a
petition, to urge people to fight the federal court's decision
not to allow the banning of single use plastic. 

I will include the link here, and please sign it if you can.
The court said that the ban was "unconstitutional", but
destroying our lakes and oceans -- nature, marine life,
and human life is constitutional?  Reading about this made
me disgusted that the big plastic producing companies
are valued above all.  Not right in a democracy.

So I'm putting this guy up again for this day, and I'll
include the link to the petition here.  If you can sign it
thank you.
