Dear Alanna and Valeria,

Your mom has tried. Those nights she’s left you to go to meetings on climate change action and wasn’t there to put you to bed, your mom was trying… I promise you to keep trying, to keep educating, to keep pushing our elected officials to act and protect your health now and in the future. I am sorry I brought you into this, please forgive me. But please now that I love you and I am trying!

-Michelle
