More Messages to the Future
Dear Nolan, Patrick, Cullen and Gabriel,
This Mother’s Day I am again thinking of my grandsons future and what I am doing to change the world if only by a small fraction.
I feel deeply that it is my moral obligation as your Mom to protect your future and allow you to inherit a clean and healthy planet.
To my brother’s children,
We wondered about how we might be able to eliminate plastics from our day to day routines, and recycled literally everything. We were amazing, you should have seen us. Now and again though, we wondered if these were the right questions.

How can I help you save the world and our country?
I am grateful for your soul, for your creativity, for your empathy. All these are precious treasures that you have to offer the world. They will help. I thank you for being in this world right now, so that you can offer these gifts at a time of transition.

Dear Alanna and Valeria,
I promise you to keep trying, to keep educating, to keep pushing our elected officials to act and protect your health now and in the future.
Dear Nuriel, Eliran, and Rotem,
Sometimes I think we will never make it, but I know we must keep trying.
To My Future Children,
Most importantly, I hope you live in a world where science is taken seriously and fact is clearly distinguished from fiction.
I will use less plastic.
No plastic straws, no water bottles, shop local, no meat.
Dear Elliot and Alana,
But being truthful, I know we are not yet on the path that will lead to the change that is needed; but it is visible.
