Dear my future child,

You must be aware that the world has something called climate change. Climate Change-“A change in global or regional climate patterns, in particular a change apparent from the mid to late 20th century onwards and attributed largely to the increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide produced by the use of fossil fuels.” Although you might not know what that means, all you need to know right now is that it is bad. I will make sure to do my best to prevent it to provide a healthy future for you. I will invest in energy-efficient appliances, reduce water waste in our household, buy better light bulbs, pick up trash, power our home with renewable energy, buy less meat and eat all I buy, drive an efficient vehicle, and anything else that I learn in the future that will help I will do for you. To give you the same opportunities I had in my childhood. To give you the same safety and health. So you can learn and tell the same to your child.

Love, Serena

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.
