To my future self,

In 2050, you are going to be 48 years old. I wonder what will have changed at this point. When writing this letter in 2020, everybody is talking about climatic change and what dramatic consequences it will have. Some say there is nothing like a climatic change and others are exaggerating the topic. But it is clear that something has to change. Maybe in 2050, people will notice that we have to stop talking and actually do something against climate change. But the problem is that nothing will change until something absolutely terrible happens. I don’t think a government or a big company would give up some of their wealth just to “save the environment“. So it’s a task for the younger generation. We have to change something because the company chairman probably won’t. And we have to be careful not to become a chairman only thinking about wealth. And I will be careful.

Greetings

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.
