Loved One,

I hope this letter finds you in a good place, physical, mentally, and spiritual. Today, I am doing my part so you have a bright future a head of you. The negative human impact on the earth is effecting us all, hopefully this is a worry of the past, that is why I am writing since today too many lives are being destroyed because of climate change. I am looking to slow and even cease this process by reaching out to my community to shift thought processes about sustainability. That we all have a role to play no matter how small, we all can make a difference. My focus it to see that my and other communities are becoming more conscious consumers by knowing their impact with buying different products and the quantity of the purchase as well. Are people today more aware of their purchase power and the impact it lays on all aspects of the supply chain in effect as well as the economy? That we have the power to normalize purchases of fair trade products and goods. That we don’t have to question the ethics of everything created in this world. Do we really need to continue to fight for basic human right still? Such as the access to clean and safe drinking water. Are their more issues then today? Or are their just different issues? Are their less issues? I hope for less issues, that the global community has ethical good, fresh water, living wages, suitable working conditions, access to organic foods, and that all is well. If we all work together we can make this idealize world a reality, I hope you are living in it.
Much Love,
Emily

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.

Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.

It’s scary, this is the stuff you see in movies about the end of the world.
