Dear Spike, Loulou and Yoshua,

I saw the movie Before the Flood; I work in Sustainability so I know the situation was bad. But.. it’s more than bad, it’s terrible. If we do not act immediately, we’ll leave you a destroyed world. That’s why I do not want to wait anymore. It’s not enough to be a vegetarian, to use solar energy and be a farmer in a biological csa. So I’m going to start a campaign to try to convince everybody in the Netherlands to not eat meat one day a week. Meat is a big CO2 supplier and eating meat benefits animal cruelty. I hope I can do something in this way to create a better world for you and your beloved.

xxx Yolande

To my children – Chase, Maya and Harlan

I hope that we manage to change the system really soon, while there is still time. So that you are not left with the mess, and trying to fix something that you didn’t cause. I hope we figured out a way to be kind, and caring for others who will suffer more than us. A way to let go of the greed and look at ways we can help others rather than take from them.
