Dear sweet wonderful grandchildren,

Hi sweeties, I am writing this to you on April 28th, 2017. Right now you are a speck of stardust dancing in the universe and a dream in your parents’ hearts. I hope that I am able to be present when you decide to join our family and that I have time to watch you grow and learn and discover this magical place we call Earth. It is full of awe and wonder and majesty but it is in a very fragile state right now. Today, as we grapple with the realities of climate change, we find ourselves on the edge of saving or destroying it, but I am working hard to ensure that when you arrive, you will find a healthy, thriving, and lovely planet to explore and enjoy. I hope that I have the chance to hold your hands and walk with you in Adirondack forests, along rocky and sandy beaches, through clear cold streams, and flower filled meadows. We will look for salamanders, find birds, investigate plants, and immerse ourselves in the glories of nature where ever we find them. I know that your parents wish all of this for you too and I know they will be your guides and companions on many adventures. Know that you are loved beyond measure and that all of us are doing everything we can to leave you a beautiful healthy planet!

With much, much love,

Grandma / Mutti / Grams

Dear Tomorrow

Dear Future Sami Lee,

Everyone currently in life laughs and yells save the bees. We were a bee this year for Halloween and Lucy even came up with a great slogan “get with it honey”.

 

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.

 

Dear Future,

I will use less plastic.

 

Dear grandchild,

There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?).

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to not waste food and eat locally grown food.

 

Pour ma famille,

Il faut trouver le 7ème sens et se battre pour des causes justes, comme l´amour et la liberté.

Stay Cool and Save the Whales

 

Dear Tomorrow

I hope that environmental issues are a thing of the past.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will encourage everyone to adopt a plant-based diet. Good for our health, the animals and the planet.

 

To My Fellow Two-Spirits,

Thank you — Thank you — without you, I would not hear butterflies singing, without you, I would not understand black bear humor, or the creativity of jays planning their breakfast, without you, I would not feel flora whispers of long-lived wisdom on the back of my neck while sitting in Padmasana.

 

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.
