To Future Me,

Dear future. Today is 2017 1st February, 10.26 PM. I’ve seen a movie about climate change, its called Before The Flood. The only thing that I can think of is this movie showed me how far we are from destroying our future and world. The movie is a true inspiration. Right here and now I’m only a poor 14 years old girl who is living in a small house with 7 people in it and 4 bedrooms, and dreaming something big, saving our world and become a successful person. I’m sorry if I’m spelling wrong because the laptop is Norwegian language and it’s kind of hard to write English. I just want to say. You can do it, save the world, save people who need help, save the future. We all need faith in ourselves and the world. It’s always the way out of the nightmares. I only hope maybe one day I can be one of the people who saved thousands of life. As Leonardo said “I do not take this world for granted” and you shall not do it either. In 2030 I hope I’m a good person who’s living the life happily. I may write some few more letters since its late and I’m tired so I’m not really so sure what I’m writing.

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 Tomorrow,

The road I learned to ride my bike on, the field where I kicked my first soccer ball, and the park I ate my first ice cream cone at, could all be gone.

 

Dear Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.
