On April 14, 2008, I attended the Goldman Environmental Prize ceremony in San Francisco. The stories of grassroots activism and accomplishment were inspiring. Award-recipient Ignace Schops (of Belgium) made, during his acceptance remarks, the comment: “Martin Luther King never inspired others with ‘I have a nightmare.’ He started with ‘I have a dream.’”
At a subsequent reception in San Francisco’s City Hall, I met each recipient, said hello to Richard Goldman and his sons Doug and John, and shook hands with Mayors Frank Jordan and Gavin Newsom.
