Dear future children,

I hope both for my sake and for yours that I have taught you to be intentional with your actions and understanding of your impact on the world around you, to respect all living creatures around you and to believe in the inherent value that all things (both living and non-living) hold. Promise that you will continue to live a lifestyle that leaves as little a footprint on the world as possible, and that you will dedicate your lives to helping others do the same. I am making that promise now, and I vow to teach you to do the same.
