Valerie 's Letter

To my beautiful grandchildren, Monty Wilf Bess George and Maggie,

We live in a beautiful world, a world you deserve to explore, learn about and cherish. Some of us have been trying for a very long time to protect it and warn our governments about the damage we have all been doing to it. I am sorry that we haven’t been able to make enough changes to our way of life and to find better, less harmful ways of living so that you can enjoy the world as it is and has been. Sadly you will have to face a harder future and I wish with all my heart that we could protect you from that.
I hope you learn from our mistakes and find better, gentler ways to live and I know that you will bring all your resilience and resources to face the future.
