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

Hi buddy,

I can now see that the solutions are there, that a transition of the magnitude that is needed, is possible.

 

To my Maria and her children,

I have to tell you something: it is so hard to keep our life “green” for now, but we still keep trying.

 

Dear Grandchildren,

I hope we can pass on a better place to live so that my grandchildren and their future children can enjoy the beauty of nature that our wonderful God has given us.

Your path will only be as clear tomorrow as we have made it for you today.

 

Dear Nephew,

I am going to start doing better to have a healthier planet for you to live on.

 

To Annika, Anders, Stella, Eva, and Mickey,

In writing to you, I realize that I don’t want you to be hard on yourself if you choose to not make this your cause. But it is mine, so I hope that you hold me accountable to some of what I wrote here.

 

Dear Grandchildren — August and any others who were born after him

I joined millions of other people who wrote letters and made calls urging our leaders to do more to care for the planet.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

It wasn’t about Him, it was about Us. And this isn’t about Me, it’s about You. And it won’t be about You, it will be about Them.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to shop at more farmer’s markets.

 

My future husband,

I want us to read this in future time and remember all the senses and views we witnessed.

 

I promise to stop eating junk food.

 

To my fellow adventurers,

Don’t stop looking for adventures.
