I promise to plant 5 trees every year just to make sure I don’t leave a carbon footprint.
Dear Erica and Matthew,
I want you to be able to bring your kids to Tahoe and experience the same clarity that you had as a child.
To my future children,
It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.
I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit, use metal straws, take quick showers.
Dear Future Ryan,
I promise to be a knight in the campaign of truth seeking.

I promise those who walked the Earth before me and those who will walk the Earth after me that I will not stand by and let nature slip through my fingers.
When I asked you why the purple Violet called to you, you told me it was “magic”. I hope that you can still find the magic of life. I hope, despite everything, it is still in abundance.

The journey of humanity does not take us to Mars like the world now likes to believe. It takes us home to our true self where there is no separate self. Where we are all one. You know all this. Look after yourself my child, look after your brother, your friends, your children, all the animals and the whole planet. Love them like there is no tomorrow.
To My Future Children,
Most importantly, I hope you live in a world where science is taken seriously and fact is clearly distinguished from fiction.
