Dear A and C,

You are growing up in a time of immense change. In the last two years alone, we’ve learned so much about big and important issues including climate change and the systemic racism that runs through our institutions. In some cases, we are learning things for the first time, right alongside you, while unlearning a lot of what we were told and taught by our parents and the education system we grew up in.

Many days, it feels pretty dark, and the challenges we’re facing seem insurmountable. But I can see the light, too, when I see your kindness, and the way you care for animals and nature.

Your dad and I are doing everything we can to fix some of these things. And we aren’t alone; collective action is finally starting to happen. The world is working on it, and we won’t give up.
