Dear Llewyn, beloved grandson …
I can only say that I devoted myself to doing as much as I could to make it better, to provide for a just transition, and to fight those forces that continued to exploit the Eaarth with extractive methods, methods that always also included oppressing some people–because those doing the oppression believed that they were better and deserved more.
Everyone should be grow at least 100 trees in his lifetime.
I want you to be prepared for the world that the generations before you are creating for you. I love you Lucienne, and I will not give up. I will push you and teach you not to give up, either, even if others around you do.
My dear daughters,
I will use my voice to help bring awareness about climate change.
For my most dear and only daughter,

I promise to stop eating beef.
Dear Gorasia descendants,
I will do all that I can, and hope my fellow inhabitants join my pursuit, to nurture this planet.
I promise to work with my family and neighbors to reduce carbon output.
Dear X—, Dear A—,
As with our struggles to eliminate police brutality, as with hate crimes, so it is with climate change – there are actually a lot of people out there who care.
