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
