Dear Annalyse and Greyson,

I remember when the 3 of us would go outside to water the pineapples. Annalyse you had turned 2 a month ago. Greyson you were turning 1 in five more days. The hose had a couple holes in it and the two of you always played in the spray of the water. Then I would drench you by putting the hose above your head and giving you a good soaking. You both would look surprised and then laugh.

I pray that when you are my age (53), and no that’s not really old, you will have a world that the inhabitants aren’t trying to kill each other in some war. I pray the two generations before you did a good job and cleaned up their act. When I was in grade school, 6th grade, we were told that by 1998 cars would be flying, people would work less because machines would do their jobs and it would be a nicer place to live. Well at 32, none of that had happened.

It’s 2050 now, if I’m alive I am 84 years old and probably have no memory of writing this to you. Some changes have happened back in the 2000s to 2020. They are finally rediscovering the uses of hemp so hopefully they can let trees grow. There are electric cars, but not too many places where you can stop and recharge if you are on a long drive. There are more laws concerning how much emissions (pollution) a company can spill into the air. Let your world be filled with sunshine, but not too much. Let climate change have reversed itself and is healing now. I hope you have a good healthy planet to live on, but if you hear about a guy building an ark, make sure you get me on it with you.

My mom, your Nanny (great grandma), used to say, “You’re going to hell in a hand-basket, if you don’t mend your ways.” Well that’s exactly where the earth is heading if all the people on it, everyone from every country, do not change their attitudes and start being active about saving the earth, all its resources and all forms of life!

See people can say they care about climate change, but caring is not action. They can donate money towards climate change and that is a wonderful thing, but we need people who can take the money and actively take trash from the ocean and save the rain forest and stop species from becoming extinct.

My promise to you is that I will recycle more than I have been and use my reusable grocery bags (except for the few plastic ones I use for dirty diapers from the 2 of you.)

I love you both to the moon and back!
XOXOXOXO

If we could all slow down, look around and connect: with each other, the Earth, the sky, the plants and rocks and animals, then maybe we can all remember to treat everyone and everything with respect and live in love.
