To my future grandchildren,

I just want to start off by saying this: I’m so sorry.

It’s 2019 now and we’re trying our best to right the wrongs of our grandparent’s generation. As of November 25th, greenhouse gas emissions are at it’s highest. The Amazon rainforest is on fire. Venice, Italy is underwater. Koalas are almost extinct. By the time you read this, there will be even more consequences than what we could have predicted.

Please know there are people out here right now championing your future. I’m going to fight for your future. I can only hope you do the same for your grandchildren.

Remember your values. Remember to be kind. Even if there’s nothing else on this planet, kindness will see itself through.

Dear Future Afnan,

You should make a time machine and come back to past and solve all the problems.

I want you to continue to enjoy bright, beautiful, blue skies, gigantic shady trees, chirping birds, scampering squirrels, sparkling creeks and all that this amazing world has to offer!

I promise to use my reusable water bottle more often

 

Dear Sadie,

You are young and have a rich future ahead of you. I am retired and aiming for a high quality of cultural life and comfort with whatever time remains to me. I do not want to see a world whose elders sacrifice your future for their short-term needs and personal gain. So it’s up to you and me to speak out.

 

Dear Tom and Leena,

I want you to only see the beauty in this world; there is so much of it and I will protect this beauty for as long as I am here on this Earth.
