Angie Smith's Letter

To my grandaugher,

Even though you are not yet born I am writing to you in 2022 to apologise for the state of our world.
We had a chance when most of us knew how bad it could get and yet we did not take it. Some of us tried protesting to get our governments to listen but they changed the law to make it more difficult.
Some of us made changes in our life styles to help but it was not enough.
The issues seemed too huge to tackle and our dependence on money and economics was too great.
I feel for you that you now have to see so much hardship and destruction and I hope that you have the resilience to survive the challenging times ahead.
I wish that we could have done more and hope that it is not too late for us to change as a species and focus on what is important on this beautiful planet.
