Dear Grandchildren — August and any others who were born after him

Way back in 2020 I was 72 years old and Grampa Gary and I lives right next to the Pacific Ocean. We wanted the ocean along with all the aspects of Earth to be clean and filled with life. I worked on films (videos actually, but we still called them films) and wrote books and gave talks to help people remember how precious life is and how connected we all are. I changed my way of living to consume less, waste less, use less fuel, and live in peace will all the life (human and otherwise) that surrounded me. I hoped and prayed that what I was doing would make a difference. I joined millions of other people who wrote letters and made calls urging our leaders to do more to care for the planet. Back then we still acted like war was necessary, buying tons of stuff was common, and humans were the smartest life forms. Ha ha. Boy were we wrong! As you know, there is no need for war or hunger or poverty. There is enough for everyone if we are smart and loving in the way we live. I was part of the Harmony Squad (also known as the Elders Action Network) and this enabled me to meet with others who shared my beliefs. Now, all these years later, I hope you will remember your Grandma Nancy as someone who did her best to work for your future — your life. I hope it is a happy one!
