Dory, my love
It’s 2017 now and you will be almost my age now when you read this. You know my fears for the future. I hope we have managed to avert David King’s ‘catastrophic’ climate change – and all the other pitfalls we have set ourselves up for – nuclear leaks, biodiversity loss, resource depletion etc. All I can say is that I tried – I have been giving the talks for a year now. My generation can only offer its apologies – how have we stayed so ignorant for so long? Too many answers to that. I hope you too can say that you have done your best to leave this planet in a better state than you found it – I’m sure you will. I hope I am there in 2050 to read this with you but if not, always know how much you were loved.
Your mum – Nikki XXX
