Dear Brian & Amanda,

I love you both so much. You will now be the age I was when I wrote this, and I am either elderly or gone. I am so heartbroken that your mid-life is marked by drought, severe storms, flooding, sea level rise, military conflict and that the economy is now overwhelmed financially by loss of agriculture, shipping ports, airports, roads & train tracks, as well as coastal cities.

I hope you haven’t been victims of violence or martial law as society became desperate and government supports collapsed. I hope I have had the courage to dissuade you from having children, as I have known for a long time that this will be your fate, and did not want you to worry about your children’s future the way I have for you two. I hope my years efforts to ban fracking has helped protect your drinking water.

I never gave up on you and have no regrets. I hope my time away from you, volunteering to get local ordinances and laws passed, has succeeded in protecting at least our home state. I hope there is happiness in your life and our family is together.

Love, Mom

Dear future 82-year old me,

29 years later, I wish I still can ride bike and go some lovely places in nature. Sky is blue and air is fresh, I will be shining under the sun.

 

To my Kids,

I wish you all the best and always make sure that you can be proud of yourself and don’t need status-symbols for feeling nice.

 

Dear Students,

I imagine at this point we have dropped our addiction to coal, gas, and oil and that our environment has made a turn for the better with the solar, wind, and other unimagined (at this point) alternative energy choices are in place.

 

My Dear Grandchildren,

In writing this letter to you, I am searching for ways to make my connection and commitment to you more present in my current experience

 

Dear Lucie,

Lucie, I love you more than you could ever know and I hope that my promises help contribute to a better world for you and inspire you to take action as well as you grow into the amazing adult I know you will be.

 

Dear June and Colin,

I’m sad and angry that collectively more has not been done to this date. And that still with such dire warnings, obvious impacts, those in power are acting far too slowly.

 

Querida Alê,

Por você idealizei um mundo melhor e lutei incessantemente por ele.
