And I'm worried about our fate. Some of us realize that climate change IS happening, as we speak.

Dear Tomorrow,

2016...And I'm worried about our fate. Some of us realize that climate change IS happening, as we speak. Sadly, very few seem to want to do anything about it. There are even some fools who dismiss it all as a hoax. Chances are that by 2030 I'll no longer be above the sod...So I hope that anyone reading this will be able to say "Rest easy, Dave. They finally acted,

I hope you have a world with clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, and healthy food to eat every day.

Dear Tomorrow,

If we are good stewards you will have a world to live in that is better than what we got from our ancestors. I have trouble breathing the air many days here in Seattle, Washington. Most people don't notice the level of pollution we have, but my lungs do. I hope we've fixed that by your time. I hope you have a world with clean air to breathe, clean water

The most important thing in my life is you, which means that as your mom – I am doing my very best to make sure that when you read this letter, Earth is a cleaner and safer place for you and your children.

Dear Grown up Alton and Dot,

You two are the most amazing and special people that I know. We had so much fun together when you were little and I can’t wait for all the things we are going to do together in the future. I’m amazed each day by how much you know and the amazing people you are turning into. I’ve always done my best to be honest with you about things – maybe

I feel deeply that it is my moral obligation as your Mom to protect your future and allow you to inherit a clean and healthy planet.

Dear Jackson,

You are the light of my life. We waited so long for you and the day you were born was the most incredible day of my life. The second I held you, everything changed. I immediately sensed your calm and sweet spirit. You are, and will always be, our little miracle boy. As most parents do, I want the very best for you. I want you to be happy and to

My desire is for clean air, clean water, rich soil, and healthy nutritious food for you and all children always everywhere.

Dear Anabelle and Bruce,

Protecting fragile ecosystems that sustain life is like caring for children and grandchildren. It requires time, attention, and love. My desire is for clean air, clean water, rich soil, and healthy nutritious food for you and all children always everywhere. My hope is that choices, actions, decisions, policies, and plans will be based on knowledge, scientific facts, respect for the natural world, and appreciation for the natural order of our beautiful

I personally did all I could to make the world a better place for you.

Dear Tomorrow,

I personally did all I could to make the world a better place for you. I was far from alone in the effort. We've had to contend with obstacles like ignorance and greed (that did its best to foster ignorance). The struggle isn't over and while I hope we're on the winning side because good is supposed to triumph over evil, at this point I don't know what you'll have

I get people to sign petitions and vote to protect our wonderful world.

Dear Tomorrow,

Your life is as important as mine so I promise you I think of you everyday. I limit driving, use energy saving light bulbs, and keep lights off except in darkness to reduce climate change pollution. I eat vegan to reduce climate change pollution and to move people toward greater humanity. I get people to sign petitions and vote to protect our wonderful world. In my small Colorado town, people

My hope for you is that all our legislative efforts and care for the environment makes a difference so that we can wipe asthma out of our family.

Hey Kiddos!

I hope this note finds you having an amazing day and enjoying whatever Chicago weather has to offer. As you know, mommy, has bad asthma and it has been getting worse over the years. My hope for you is that all our legislative efforts and care for the environment makes a difference so that we can wipe asthma out of our family. I love you and can't wait to enjoy our world

If there is one thing that I taught you it is to be honest in your decisions as they pertain to yourselves and the earth in which you live.

To my children,

I want a future that has no fighting. Fighting for fresh air and fresh water. I want a future for all of you with no violence. The violent destroying of our land, water and air. A future with no lies. I want you to be stewards of the earth and each other. I want a place where you are not torn apart. Torn by the constant need of money over

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

To my precious children

Today, we had to wash your feet before you could come in the house. The dirt covered your legs and streaked your arms. This is the childhood you should have. You should not be constantly on the lookout for evidence of pollution. I want your childhood to me marked by peace and beauty as we explore this world together. I want clean air, clean energy and muddy feet for you. I want

Here’s the biggest secret: I KNOW it will have. We may not realize how, but we have changed the world.

Dear Owen and Vivian,

When you read this, you’ll be a GROWN UP. In your 4-year-old minds adulthood must seem like an eternity away, but let me just tell you: I SWEAR that yesterday was the day you joined Daddy and I on the “outside,” so trust me when I say, time and its passage are mysterious things. When you were born, we lived in Hoboken, just across the river from New York City. You

What I wish most for you girls is that the care you have shown each other would extend to the big wide world around you.

Dear Madeline, Ava, and Harper,

As I watch you three grow, my greatest hope is that you love and care for each other. You do it so well, even in these elementary and pre-teen years. So it is a great comfort to me to know that you girls will never be without a sister—or two—by your side, long after your father and I are gone from this world. Sisterhood is powerful. You were probably too young

I am grateful for your soul, for your creativity, for your empathy. All these are precious treasures that you have to offer the world. They will help. I thank you for being in this world right now, so that you can offer these gifts at a time of transition.

Dear Isaiah,

Last year, when I was tucking you in to bed one night, you said, “I wish I lived a thousand years ago.” When I asked you why, you said, “Because there would be no pollution, and no global warming.” It breaks my heart every time I think about that night. You just turned 10. You are my middle child, my musician, my sensitive soul, my engineer. You dream big, and love big.
