Dear kids,

Today I taught a lesson about climate change and the importance of a united global response which led to a discussion on the importance Paris Agreement.  This made me reflect on when I went to high school and the optimism I had with the Kyoto agreement and the belief we were at the cusp of change.  Decades later it is your generation and the growing youth movement that gives me hope.

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.
