Dear future self or to anyone who may read this,

I hope by the time that you read this letter, there would be more people that will take climate change seriously. I am writing this letter in 2020 where the climate change issue is still a heavily debated topic. This year has been a crazy year with the wildfires that took place in CA, hurricanes and the pandemic. Hopefully, by the time you have read this letter things are more calm and that you are doing your best to teach others to take climate change and global warming more seriously. Try your best to lead a clean and healthy lifestyle so that you can lower your carbon footprint and protect the planet. Try to be a good role model for others to follow and always try to have a positive impact on others!

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.

 

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.

 

To My Grandchildren,
