To my children and grandchildren,

Hello my future family. I hope that you are around to read this message. The year is 2018 and things seem to be rapidly getting worse. The west coast is constantly on fire while the east coast gets slammed month after month by hurricanes and severe snow storms. And yet nobody seems to be taking the necessary action to change these things. Politicians and people we put in power actually believe that climate change doesn’t exist. We have been warned and I myself am fearful of my own future. Catastrophic events occur more regularly and seem to take more and more lives each time. My fear is, have we gone too far? is what we have put this planet through beyond repair? I have to assume that the damage done will only continue to get worse. I cannot tell you to completely change your lives to save the Earth, but I will tell you to be conscience that we only have one and to do small things to change it. I just hope those changes come before it is too late.

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.
