Dear Rowan and Anaka,
If we could talk, I would not be able to bear your gaze as you ask: How could you, the people in a position to change the course of climate change, fail to act?
Dear You Tomorrow,

We want to let others know about how to fight climate crisis.
Dear my future child,
I promise you, I am going to do everything I can to save this planet for you. I won’t let you down, I swear.
Dear Victoria, sugar pie honey bunch, chiquita loquita,
How can I look at your bright eyes and light dance and tell you we are facing a war?
I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit 🙂 and to bike for local errands.
Dear Tom and Leena,
I want you to only see the beauty in this world; there is so much of it and I will protect this beauty for as long as I am here on this Earth.
And, if this summer has taught me anything, I am content (because I have to be) living in this limbo, this seemingly endless waiting for the opportunity to change, when really the opportunity exists within our very selves all along.
To my future self,
It is today on March 6th, 2017 that you have made the decision to make a difference in this world.
Right now you are only a little over 5 weeks old, but you have truly changed my whole world. Your Mom and I always say that we thought we loved before you were born, but now that you have come into the world and we met you, our ability to love just expanded exponentially.
