To my grandson,

I hope this letter finds you coming home to a livable and affordable space, that you have a tree shading you and that you have dinner ready to be picked from your own sustainable garden plot.  I hope that I have left you with the education that will help you make good choices for you, your community and as a citizen of Earth.  I know that you’ve had to be stronger and more creative than your parents and your grandpa and I did.  I wish there were more things that my generation could have done for you but hopefully you will be able to do better for yours.  We love you and know that we at least left you some tools to help.

More Messages to the Future

 

To my precious children

I want clean air, clean energy and muddy feet for you. I want this for all children.

 

My future husband,

I want us to read this in future time and remember all the senses and views we witnessed.

 

Dear humankind of today and tomorrow,

I do wish to contribute as much as I can, maybe even start a ripple effect, where other people will start taking action too and inspire other people too.

 

My Dear Paloma,

I’m going to commit to raising you with your eyes open. Being aware as much as we can, how to better our environment together.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will teach my children about a greener earth.

 

I won’t leave my lights on.

 

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,

My climate promise is to stop using electricity too much.

 

To older Rochelle,

You should’ve reduced your carbon footprint, should be using some source of renewable energy and be a vegetarian by now.

 

Dear Nova and Remi,

I wish for you both that another kind of life has been discovered, one of peace, moderation and concern for all life.

 

Dear Elliot and Alana,

But being truthful, I know we are not yet on the path that will lead to the change that is needed; but it is visible.

 

Happy 34th birthday my son.

To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.
