To my grandchildren of today & the future,

I am glad that you have finally received this letter from me. Yes this is your nana here and I wanted to send you a letter from years ago back in 2017 so that I can be with you in the future even if it is just by this. I love you so very much and hope that you have a good environment to live in. I promise to do my best in helping that to happen. I have been in conversation with Leonardo DiCaprio today about how I can help with the climate changes  that are effecting the world today and into the future…your future. I have joined the movements to help more in areas of nature and design for a better safer happier world to live in. One thing that I ask of you is for you to promise me that you too will your part in making the world better, and its easy. There are simple things you can do which will have an impact. Recycling, using natural resources instead of ways that will damage the air or earth, plant a tree each year, ride a bike. These are ways that you too can help. Join the foundation and give a little if you can to the great causes that helped to save our world and all in it.

Anyway my darlings, I love you so much and your mammas too. There is no place I would rather be that with you all on a thriving happy planet called earth 😀

MUCH love and cuddles from your Nana Janice xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.
