Dear Anabelle and Bruce,

Protecting fragile ecosystems that sustain life is like caring for children and grandchildren. It requires time, attention, and love.

My desire is for clean air, clean water, rich soil, and healthy nutritious food for you and all children always everywhere. My hope is that choices, actions, decisions, policies, and plans will be based on knowledge, scientific facts, respect for the natural world, and appreciation for the natural order of our beautiful planet.

My dream is that you will someday watch and chase whales as I did, rather than only seeing images of great creatures that became extinct. And although plankton are not great creatures, they also are unique and beautiful; their survival depends on a reduction in ocean acidification, and our ability to survive depends on their survival. Everything is connected.

I am a better person because I love you. I want the world to be a better place for you. Our planet is precious – just like you. I promise to practice choices that value people and the planet over profit. I make this promise to you.

Love, Nana

Dear Lalo,

I hope whatever happens, whatever I can’t imagine that you may face, that you will continue to seek light.

 

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 Yasmine,

I tried to teach you of the importance of being satisfied with what you had within your hands.

Please eliminate plastic everything

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to shop at more farmer’s markets.

 

To my children,

I hope that the fervor that is building continues to build and spread and that the world has made progress to minimize the effects of our past actions.

 

To my future children,

I am doing everything I can because I want the footprint that I leave behind to be my feet in the sand on a beach and not a carbon one.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to stop eating beef.

 

To my fellow adventurers,

Don’t stop looking for adventures.

 

Dear Tomorrow,
