Dear Mom,

I’ll never forget walking with you to the beach in the morning, closing our eyes and stopping to listen to the sound of the waves rolling over and over again. It was so peaceful, and in that moment, I felt a deep connection to the world around us.

There will always be new phones and new gadgets, but a healthy planet is not something I can promise you, and that is what worries me.

Dear future generations,

What made Michigan so beautiful was its ability to go through seasonal changes. Recently, the seasons have been shifting with longer summers, shorter winters, and fall/spring appearing to disappear.

I want to sculpt a world for you where you can play outside without gas masks, an ocean to swim in without toxins, and a thick lively forest for you to wander.

The vicious hurricanes, the piercing heat or the animals you don’t get to see, all that is just the Earth’s response to our attacks on it.
