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

 

Dear Beloved Children,

As time progresses, there is hope that value will be placed on all living organisms, including humans, plants, and animals. Life will move at a slower pace, and being on your own time and moving at your individual pace will be the typical way of life. I consider this way of life good living, and I hope that future generations will live on this earth as it was once intended to live in peace and harmony.

 

I love you Earth.

 

Dear child,

The journey of humanity does not take us to Mars like the world now likes to believe. It takes us home to our true self where there is no separate self. Where we are all one. You know all this. Look after yourself my child, look after your brother, your friends, your children, all the animals and the whole planet. Love them like there is no tomorrow.

 

Dear future family and friends,

This is our house.

 

My darling girls,

I can be brave enough to wake up.

 

To my brother’s children,

We wondered about how we might be able to eliminate plastics from our day to day routines, and recycled literally everything. We were amazing, you should have seen us. Now and again though, we wondered if these were the right questions.

 

Dear Daughter,

Tonight at bedtime, you asked, seemingly out of nowhere, “why are the glaciers disappearing?”

 

To My Dear Children, Jackson Carlo and Stella Jane,

I am a better person because of you, and I want the world to be a better place for you.

 

I promise to plant trees and to turn off the lights.

 

Dear Spike, Loulou and Yoshua,

I’m going to start a campaign to try to convince everybody in the Netherlands to not eat meat one day a week.

 

To my daughters,

In order for you two be happy and healthy, we all need to work hard to prevent climate change.

 

Dear Chay and Kate,

Don’t ever let anyone tell you your actions don’t matter. Every single thing you do matters. You matter.
