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

Dear Llewyn, beloved grandson …

I can only say that I devoted myself to doing as much as I could to make it better, to provide for a just transition, and to fight those forces that continued to exploit the Eaarth with extractive methods, methods that always also included oppressing some people–because those doing the oppression believed that they were better and deserved more.

 

Dear Future,

I will use less plastic.

Dear Malasher and Alex,

My goal was to help you grow into better citizens of our planet; to help you care about our natural world and to make everyday choices that reflect concern for our beautiful earth and our own health as well as encourage you to work together to make changes in our community.

 

Dear future Child or Grandchild,

Climate is undeniably changing but it is not top priority.
