To my future grandchildren,

One of my favorite things about living in San Francisco is the people there. We have a diverse community that promotes tolerance and acceptance. I could not see myself calling anywhere else my home.

California has a history of drought, and global warming plays a heavy part in that. If global warming were to continue, business as usual, our home would not be the same as I remember, and you would not be able to experience it.

I hope that we could manage our impact on climate change, so the beauty of our city can be maintained for centuries.

I promise to take the steps in my life to lower my ecological footprint, and lead through example. I look forward to meeting you and sharing my favorite hidden spots.

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.
