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

More Messages to the Future

 

To my future self,

It is today on March 6th, 2017 that you have made the decision to make a difference in this world.

 

To all the people here on earth,

Who knows what the future would look like? or what will happened in the future? No one knows right? That’s why it it’s scary because we don’t know what lies ahead. We couldn’t stop the future but we can always change it.

 

Salutations to whoever may be reading this,

I promise to do my part. I promise to be the change I want to see in the world, and I hope that you, reader, will do the same.

 

To my precious children

I want clean air, clean energy and muddy feet for you. I want this for all children.

 

Dear Luna,

I will never give up on you, on humanity, on the future.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will opt up to deep green

 

To you, my dear!

In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.

 

My darling girls,

I can be brave enough to wake up.

 

To my Dad,

I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.

 

Dear Elliot and Alana,

But being truthful, I know we are not yet on the path that will lead to the change that is needed; but it is visible.

 

Dear Kids,

My mistake was thinking I needed to give you more to be a good Mom. Recently your aunt asked me what my favorite toy was growing up. I gulped, I didn’t have one- it was the outdoors, sliding down a ravine of leaves with my Dad, skiing and camping. Today is October 12th, 2021 and I am still going to be giving you a lot, it’s going to look a little different – love, experiences, education and a healthy planet.

 

Dear Anabelle and Bruce,

My desire is for clean air, clean water, rich soil, and healthy nutritious food for you and all children always everywhere.
