Letter to Future Generations,

I don’t want to make this super sad and gloomy but I cant help it. This past generation has just completely destroyed the earth. Were sorry for climate change and putting the burden on you guys to make it better. We shouldn’t have caused it in the first place and making you guys have to pay the price for it is just cruel. I at least hope we have tried to improve by switching from fossil fuels and gas cars. I just hope we have provided some good things to this world that aren’t completely negative.

I hope that my work helping to make your schools more sustainable will be something you carry on as you grow older.

Dear Indigenous Persons with Disabilities,

 

Dear Gabriel,

When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.

 

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 Nephew,

I believe i have truly played my part in raising awareness and practical solutions to climate change.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to buy organic food and run more and bike more! (I could use the exercise.)

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I have solar and will be getting an electric car next week

 

Dear Maya, Emilio and Daniel,

We thought that the world was an endless supply of whatever we wanted… I know it sounds hard to believe, but that is the way it was.

 

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.

 

Loved One,

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

 

Dear Daughter,

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