What would you say if you could speak directly to our Planet Earth? Randolph’s recently formed Climate Emergency Group wants to encourage you to do just that. For this project, we are requesting that you (and people of all ages and towns) write letters to our Planet Earth expressing your heartfelt thoughts, feelings, fears or gratitude. Musical songs, drawings and paintings are also encouraged. You can send your letter (or art or music idea) either to Susan at email@example.com or to Marjorie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are open to the idea of having your letter read aloud, we would like your permission to read your letter at a public gathering in Randolph (still in the planning stages) that will take place on Sept. 20. The Randolph event will coincide with thousands of other climate-change events taking place that same day all over the world. If you wish your letter to be considered for the Sept. 20 event, please submit it to us by Sept. 10. But the project will continue after the 20th, so please keep sending us your ideas throughout the coming months.
We are also open to other ideas people may have about this project, such as getting schools and youth groups involved, publishing the letters and artwork in local, regional and national newspapers and perhaps, eventually publishing a book.
So, get your creative juices flowing, and let our Planet Earth know what inspires you.
Susan Mills and Marjorie Ryerson
