Dear future child,

Hey love,

By the time you read this, I hope and pray that the world has gotten better. Hopefully the air is better now for you. The climate has been getting worse right now in 2018, but I promise you that I will do my best in my part to slow down the changes and reduce my usage of things that will contribute to CO2 emissions and such. I hope to get others to follow in that footstep so that you and your generation can live a better and healthier life. At the speed we are going at now, it does not look too good, but my hope and dream is to change that and create a better living space here for you. There are so many disasters happening around the world and one thing that is happening around where mom lives is wildfires. These wildfires destroyed a lot of homes and took lives of people. Wildfires are natural and normal but because of the warming planet these fires are getting bigger and out of control. They make the air really bad to breathe in for everyone including your grandma, aunts and uncles and your mom. Other disasters happen all over the world. We want to prevent or at least try to help the planet get back to being healthy so you can be healthy too.

Love,
Momma

Dear Tomorrow,

This is just the beginning. It’s the accrual of little seeds of change that will lead to the tree of revolution.

 

Dear Nephew,

I am going to start doing better to have a healthier planet for you to live on.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.

 

Dear Evan,

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 Kids,

My mistake was thinking I needed to give you more to be a good Mom. Recently your aunt asked me what my favorite toy was growing up. I gulped, I didn’t have one- it was the outdoors, sliding down a ravine of leaves with my Dad, skiing and camping. Today is October 12th, 2021 and I am still going to be giving you a lot, it’s going to look a little different – love, experiences, education and a healthy planet.

 

Querida Emanoely,

Gostaria que você se lembrasse das lições simples que mamãe e papai te ensinou, como cuidar das plantas e dos espaços coletivos.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to eat less meat.

 

Dear Future Grandchild,

We can learn a lot about how to treat others from stories that have been passed from generation to generation.

 

Dear Future Today,

Here in California we’re starting to recognize our climate changing the natural world around us.

 

To the future generations,

I will stand on the streets, in the courts, and in the schools to encourage awareness and empathy for the earth.

 

Dear Daughter,

Tonight at bedtime, you asked, seemingly out of nowhere, “why are the glaciers disappearing?”
