Dear Erica and Matthew,

Tahoe has always been our favorite place, and I so love spending our summers up there. I love that we walk and bike everywhere, I love the trailheads all around our neighborhood, and I love spending the day paddle boarding into town.  To keep Tahoe the place we love we must continue to support organizations like Sierra Watch that are fighting the Squaw and Martis Valley developments. As a family, we must continue to Keep Squaw True!!! The Tahoe Basin and the clarity of our beloved lake are at stake if we continue to allow huge developments into the basin. I want you to be able to bring your kids to Tahoe and experience the same clarity that you had as a child.

Dear Chay and Kate,

Don’t ever let anyone tell you your actions don’t matter. Every single thing you do matters. You matter.

 

Dear Gabriel,

One day ten or twenty years from now, when you look back from the future, you will be able to clearly see the entire path.

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?

Dear Maya, Emilio and Daniel,

We thought that the world was an endless supply of whatever we wanted… I know it sounds hard to believe, but that is the way it was.

 

To Annika, Anders, Stella, Eva, and Mickey,

In writing to you, I realize that I don’t want you to be hard on yourself if you choose to not make this your cause. But it is mine, so I hope that you hold me accountable to some of what I wrote here.

 

My darling Cassidy,

I know I need to write this to you, and I don’t want to because it makes me so sad. I have been desperately avoiding my feelings about climate change, for many years, but especially and with greater intensity every year since you were born.
