We thought that the world was an endless supply of whatever we wanted… I know it sounds hard to believe, but that is the way it was.

Dear Maya, Emilio and Daniel,

I hope that the world will be better when you read this. ..
I must say that in my youth I was not worried at all about climate change… It simply was something that was not on the news or on almost anybody’s mind. We were simply unconscious that we were harming the planet and thought that the world was an endless supply of whatever we wanted… I know it sounds hard to believe, but that is the way it was… I certainly do not feel good about it and today I strongly believe that we must put conservation before greed and I am sure that you guys will do a lot better than I did to take care of the Earth. I am sure we are still in pretty good time to make things the right way!!

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.

I will not stop fighting for a more sustainable future, your future.

 

My grandchildren,

My Dear Paloma,

I’m going to commit to raising you with your eyes open. Being aware as much as we can, how to better our environment together.

 

Dear My Future Child,

I want to sculpt a world for you where you can play outside without gas masks, an ocean to swim in without toxins, and a thick lively forest for you to wander.

 

Dear Makena,

Sweetie, you deserve clean air, water and soil. You deserve to thrive in an environment that supports you.

 

Queridos filhos Heloísa e Henzo,

Dear Nolan, Patrick, Cullen and Gabriel,

This Mother’s Day I am again thinking of my grandsons future and what I am doing to change the world if only by a small fraction.
