Dear blank Saward,

In short, I cared a lot but didn’t do much. I tried to limit my personal impact by recycling obsessively, unplugging things, lowering our heat (despite your father’s whining) and taking public transport. But let’s be honest, your dad and I flew constantly, I don’t recall giving money to organizations trying to impact climate change, I wasn’t careful with who I voted for and I never did any organizing beyond signing petitions. I don’t know why I didn’t. I was interested and passionate, but it all seemed too abstract and far away and I wasn’t sure what I could do anyways whereas there were things that were right there that seemed easier to act on and help with. I’m sorry.

All children deserve the opportunity for a meaningful, safe, and satisfied life. We hope our efforts to combat climate change and instill a love for the earth in you will help contribute to that.

 

Dear Lila

So today, my strong and spunky girl, I promise you this: I will stay vigilant and flexible. I will spread the word.

 

Dear Future Cassie,

I promise to be successful and help save the environment.

I promise to switch from “light” to “deep” green.

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

 

My darling girls,

I can be brave enough to wake up.

 

Dear Seamus and Tuva,

So it’s 2050. If the good people are winning the greater struggle, fossil fuels are a shamefully long chapter of the past, and there has been a full scale awakening to the need for only renewable, clean energy.

 

To My Children,

Is the world really polluted?

 

Al mio piccolo, grandissimo bambino,

Hai compiuto da poco 1 anno e giusto ieri hanno annunciato la scoperta di 7 pianeti che potrebbero racchiudere in essi la possibilità di sviluppare, o aver già sviluppato, vita a livello organico.

 

Dear Tristan,

I am doing this to protect you, the food, water, air and biodiversity of a country that I love.

 

Dear friends,

Rather than exploit it, destroy it, poison it, why don’t we just enhance the beauty of it, guard it, and love it?
