To my beloved grandchildren Sam, Carlo and Price,

I am writing this in December 2017 but you will not see it until 2050 when each of you are in your 40’s. As you hopefully remember my family including the three of you were the most important people in my life. I used to “knock on wood” often and say a silent prayer for each of you and I would always include the “world” as I knew a healthy life for each of you needed a healthy world

For me the most important issue of the day in 2017 was our environment. As you may remember me telling you, I had been concerned about the environmental situation of our world since I was in college. When I retired in 2015 at the age of 75 I decided to spend all my time volunteering for environmental organizations like Elders Climate Action, 350.org, Organizing for Action, and many local groups. I was not a politician and could not accomplish sweeping changes but I knew that each individual action taken counted. I wish I could be with you in 2050 when you view this message, but my fervent hope is that ultimately the world listened to the scientists and environmental activists and made the world healthy and safe for you and all future children!

Sent with much love,

Mar Mar
