Cecilia,

We love singing the song, ‘What a wonderful world’. I want you to know that it’s our job to keep the world a beautiful place. It’s tempting to blame big, foreign cities when you hear about problems with Global Warming. It’s easy to think major climate change might happen a long time in the future. The truth is, there is only one world and our actions make a difference. For example, the creek by our house connects to a river and the river can flow to a big lake or ocean. All along the way the water touches people, plants and animals.

When you grow up, I want you to enjoy the beautiful ocean filled with dolphins. I want you to hike up mountains and breathe in fresh air. I want you to drink clean water and eat good food.

As your Mom, I need to do better about thinking of all the little things I can do to help ensure this world is healthy and beautiful for you and for your children.

I want to teach you the importance of making less waste and using less energy. I want to grow veggies in our garden so you understand where food comes from – our Earth. I want to let the people we vote for know how important these initiatives are to our family.

If everyone does their part, I’m confident the world can be an even better place when you are an adult. God gave us a wonderful home, we must take care of it.

I love you baby!

Mom

I will recycle stuff I found.

 

To earth & its inhabitants,

Its been heavy on my shoulders since I found out about the state of climate woes as a child.

Espero de coração que, no futuro, você possa olhar para trás e se orgulhar muito dos pais que teve.

 

dear future children,

As I write this, our world is slowly giving way to climate change.

 

Dear Oliver,

I am getting your father on board too so that we can double charge this together.

 

dear future people (:

I am writing this message to you guys. When I look outside my window today, I see a beautiful world that others and myself call “home sweet home.” The trees glimmering in warm sunlight, the air stirring a cool breeze, and the water flowing down rivers are parts of our home Mother Earth.

 

Dear Chay and Kate,

Don’t ever let anyone tell you your actions don’t matter. Every single thing you do matters. You matter.

 

Querida Alê,

Por você idealizei um mundo melhor e lutei incessantemente por ele.

 

Filhota,

Espero de verdade saber contribuir para legá-la inteira para você, e que todos saibamos fazer isso em conjunto também.

 

Dear Kai and Leah,

I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.

 

Oh My Lovely Faizan,

I love you my son. You are waking up now. Hopefully tomorrow, more of us will, too.

 

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.
