Dear future generations,

Right now, I am feeling scared for the future of the earth, but hopeful for the direction we are going in. Young people are making a lot of noise and politicians are now listening. They are scared of the power we have to make the changes that are necessary.

I continue to ride my bike to class, I have been vegetarian for a year and a half and have severely cut down dairy consumption, and mostly shop at consignment or thrift stores. Reusing is key!

If you keep loving and spreading peace, the world is full of endless possibilities and opportunities.

Best wishes to everyone everywhere, and rock on!

Love, Rebecca

For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

My dear granddaughter Christy,

My own curiosity and knowing what a caring, aware young woman you are help me override despair.
