Dear Brother,

Well, right now our society is at a turning point. Climate change is becoming more and more talked about and spread around, but it’s more of a political debate than where it really needs to be. That point is people taking action to mitigate and adapt to this problem. I have hope, and I really hope you have been able to sustain a family and work at a job you love – don’t focus on the money.

My promise to you is that I’m going to focus on what I love, my family, and speaking out for what’s right. It might have gotten really bad for you: less food, less clean water, and impacts on every part of your life. Just know, it’s not your fault. Please don’t put blame on yourself. As long as you’ve done what is comfortable for yourself, you’ve done great.

You’re going to get through this. Focus on the good in the bad situations. The world is full of bad, but if you focus on the goods it will get a lot easier on yourself and your family. I will do all I can to help you and your generation live a better life. I don’t know exactly what that is yet, but I know I’ll find it. I love you.

-Jaret

To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.

I am so sorry we didn’t realize this predicament sooner.

 

Dear Anabelle and Bruce,

My desire is for clean air, clean water, rich soil, and healthy nutritious food for you and all children always everywhere.
