Salutations to whoever may be reading this,

You may not know me & I probably don’t know you, but I think we both have the same idea:  we have to do something about our Earth. If we don’t do something soon, we won’t be able to get our Earth back, no matter how much we try. This sucks and you probably hear this all of the time, but it really shouldn’t discourage you. I am 17 & a senior in high school right now & I think I have been hearing this all of my life, but now I am trying to be the change I want to see in the world. That saying is really cheesy – it is, I got it from some motivational poster– but it is very true. Small things like picking up after yourself, recycling the correct things, doing your research, really anything can help. You can count on me doing part, so I hope I can count on you too. I know that we can do it if we all just start to pitch in and do our part. Doesn’t matter how old you are, your level of intellect, or your income; we can all do something because this Earth is our home. If you look at the picture I attached you will see how beautiful the ocean looks. Now what would happen if it filled with a bunch of plastic objects, not so beautiful anymore. Let’s pick up after ourselves, let’s do our part. I know that if we all help, even if it’s a little, we’ll be able to save our home.

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 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.
