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.

Caro me stesso,

Dear Lila

So today, my strong and spunky girl, I promise you this: I will stay vigilant and flexible. I will spread the word.

 

Hey kiddo,

I’ll be here to tell you all the ways I have fought for the health of our home, and fought to protect all of the wide, open spaces for you to run in. When you’re old enough, we can fight together.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will convince my family to switch their gas appliances to electric.

 

Querida Tainah,

Quero que você beba água pura, coma alimentos sem agrotóxicos e que sua casinha branca com varanda, seja voltada para o leste, onde o sol vai nascer.
