Dear future Child…

I picture you playing in the sand and ocean just as I did, however, you may come across some our challenges as the past generations (including my own) have put up some barriers. You may see litter lined on the shores, trash in the oceans, or the effects of the rising sea level. Who knows, maybe will increasing temperatures you will be on this beach at any time of the year. As I do not want this for you, I promise to reanalyze and fix my carbon footprint, to mitigate my negative impacts on the environment and to treat the earth like the home it is. I will attend protests so that my voice is heard and hopefully policy makers hear so that they can make change on behalf of everyone. I can start small, so today, I will not eat that steak I was going to buy, but instead make veggie burgers.

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.

 

dear future children,

As I write this, our world is slowly giving way to climate change.
