Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.
Dear grand nieces and nephews,
I wish you this security knowing we changed because we love you.
Fighting for a system that rewards care for people and planet over profit.
Dear Madeline, Ava, and Harper,
What I wish most for you girls is that the care you have shown each other would extend to the big wide world around you.
We only have 11 years left until the damage done by climate change is irreversible.
To my fellow adventurers,
Don’t stop looking for adventures.
To my children,
If there is one thing that I taught you it is to be honest in your decisions as they pertain to yourselves and the earth in which you live.
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.
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.
To earth & its inhabitants,
Its been heavy on my shoulders since I found out about the state of climate woes as a child.
I promise to ditch all the natural gas and go all electric with my home!
To Annika, Anders, Stella, Eva, and Mickey,
In writing to you, I realize that I don’t want you to be hard on yourself if you choose to not make this your cause. But it is mine, so I hope that you hold me accountable to some of what I wrote here.
