Dear Alanna and Valeria,
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.
To my precious children,
As you’ve grown older, I’ve become increasingly aware that protecting you means more than ensuring your short-term safety. It also means ensuring that you’ll have a safe planet to live on.
To my child,
For the pale blue dot we live on, a precious beauty, I try to help.
To my children,
If there is one thing that I taught you it is to be honest in your decisions as they pertain to yourselves and the earth in which you live.
Pour ma famille,

To my Maria and her children,
I have to tell you something: it is so hard to keep our life “green” for now, but we still keep trying.
I promise I will do everything I can to help fight against climate change.
To My Dear Children, Jackson Carlo and Stella Jane,
I am a better person because of you, and I want the world to be a better place for you.
I can now see that the solutions are there, that a transition of the magnitude that is needed, is possible.
