To my future children and grandchildren,

I hope that the world you see before you is still a world filled with the beauty and wonders of nature. I hope that there is enough greenery and foliage to captivate you while you daydream about your own future. I hope that there is a kind and loving population that cares for the Earth enough to preserve it, rather than exploit it. I hope that you can still enjoy warm days playing outside without having to wear a mask. I hope that you can bundle up in the middle of October instead of wondering why it’s so warm in the fall. I hope that you and your peers can envision a future that is even more beautiful than the world in front of your eyes.

Dear future Child or Grandchild,

Climate is undeniably changing but it is not top priority.

 

To Annika, Anders, Stella, Eva, and Mickey,

In writing to you, I realize that I don’t want you to be hard on yourself if you choose to not make this your cause. But it is mine, so I hope that you hold me accountable to some of what I wrote here.

 

The gift for next generation,

To save the big world, perhaps, we should change the mind from myself to my small family to my community.
