Dearest Loved Grandchildren and Great Ones to Come,

Although some of you we may never meet in person, ‘Granny’ here is advocating loud and strong to make sure your Mother Earth planet is in top shape like it was better in my own days Granny so loved to wander. Wanting ya’ll to be able to walk through the lovely woods and enjoy the beauty of nature, to listen to all of nature’s sweet sounds of its inhabitants of birds, deer, and little critters frolicking in the clean criks, to be breathing in clean fresh sweet air without coughing and knowing it is being done for YOU and you and you! Enjoy my sweets and continue this legacy before you now with joy, gladness and passionate resolve to keep up your own advocacy and pass it onto those who come after you with all the love given you to from your Loving memory of Granny to all of ya’ll!

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Thomas,

When you look at me with those big beautiful eyes and that innocent smile, you make me want to fight harder. And I do.

 

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.

 

dear earth,

I promise those who walked the Earth before me and those who will walk the Earth after me that I will not stand by and let nature slip through my fingers.

 

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.

 

Dear Future Grandchildren,

I hope I can look you in the eye and tell you I honestly did everything I could to protect our planet.

 

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.

 

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.

 

Dear Maddie,

Please know that I have tried very hard to be one of those people, to even make the smallest of changes in order to improve the world for you and your future.

 

Loved One,

That we all have a role to play no matter how small, we all can make a difference.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The road I learned to ride my bike on, the field where I kicked my first soccer ball, and the park I ate my first ice cream cone at, could all be gone.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will bring permaculture designs to my community.

 

Dear Tomorrow and Dearest Lex, 

I do believe that the collective power of everyone’s best efforts can curb the worst effects of climate change, and provide you with a more stable and secure future.
