People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done.

To My Children and My Future Grandchildren,

There is nothing that anyone can do to stop change. Change will happen. It is up to us to try to ensure that change happens for the better and not worse. We’ve made a lot of progress over the last 200 years in making the world a better place for most people but, while doing so, we have also done significant harm to our planet. People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done. I want you all to live in a world at least as beautiful and bountiful and full of love as the one that I’ve been able to live in. So I promise you that I will do what little I can do to help us achieve that. I will make certain changes in the personal life (e.g., I will eat less meat, I will buy energy from companies supporting wind and solar energy). I will talk about climate change. I will reject people who are unwilling to make sacrifices today to help make your world a better place. I will vote and I will vote for people who care about our planet. I think of you always and I have hope.

Love, Trevor
