Dear Elliot, Audrey, and Miles,

You all are so very young, just starting to become the people who you will grow to be. I hope to help you to strive to be more than yourselves, more than your own wants and to embrace the world with open arms and curiosity. To do this, I promise to lead my life in a way that you would be proud of. I will reduce my consumerism, be active in my community and engaged in politics that work to preserve the earth and it species. We have already lost so many animal and plant species and more will follow that path to extinction, but we have an important opportunity right now to be heroes for future generations.  I promise I will fight so that you will know a world that is full of life, animals, trees, plants, and flowers and so that you will not have to bear witness to the suffering that climate change will bring.

Love,

Linda
