I am getting your father on board too so that we can double charge this together.
I promise to reach out to more people to ditch driving and consider using public transportation. I promise to convince Marin markets that sensible policies in density and mixed use planning will further enhance everyone’s quality of life.
Dear Amara and Uma,
Maybe you heard about bats? Bats, the carriers of this disease that spread among us like wild fire. I love bats. When I was your age today, sitting in the evening on the back terrace of your grandparent’s home in Ibiza, hundreds of bats would play, dance and sing among the trees.
To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,
Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII. I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.
I promise to stop using a plastic straw.
My heart is an ocean of love for all the children facing a life of climate catastrophe.
Saiba que enquanto eu tiver vida, minha voz não calará para alertar o mal que estamos fazendo agora para as nossas gerações futuras…
Dear Abigail and Olivia,
What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?
I promise to educate others TODAY.

Dear future Child or Grandchild,
Climate is undeniably changing but it is not top priority.
