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

My Mini & Lou,

Since I first sat down with these words, a pandemic has erupted. Racial violence is reaching a fever pitch and protests are raging across the nation. It feels like the planet is succumbing to entropy, slipping further into chaos. But I write to you from a time of shifting tides.

In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.

We only have 11 years left until the damage done by climate change is irreversible.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Querida Tainah,

Quero que você beba água pura, coma alimentos sem agrotóxicos e que sua casinha branca com varanda, seja voltada para o leste, onde o sol vai nascer.

 

dear future children,

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