What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.” Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.
Dear Annie and Eric,
I hope that this life of good things is not just yours to enjoy, but that you also have decided to fight for others to have this life, too.
To my dear son,
Last year most of the world’s reefs turned white at some point, but because it was underwater you and your friends didn’t see.
I promise when I start my baking franchise, I will reduce pollution made by it as much as physically possible.
My act of love will be to use all the power I have, during the rest of my life, to stop climate change.
Dear fellow human,
May my tomorrow include more attention to these details so that you know that I do care.
My dearest children Ameilia and Alivia,
I want you to hear the whispers of the seasons changing. The rustling of leaves as they gracefully cascade down from their limbs in the fall, birds singing in spring, and frogs that serenade the summer night.
To all the children of the future and those who love them,
While there is still breath in this body I will give of my soul and my time and energy to making the world a better place, for you, and all the beautiful living beings of this world.
Dear Anabelle and Bruce,
My desire is for clean air, clean water, rich soil, and healthy nutritious food for you and all children always everywhere.
To the future generations,
I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.
Dear Future Self,
I am scared of the things happening right now with our planet.
Stay Cool and Save the Whales
