Dear future children,

With the recent election of Trump and the immoral policy changes he intends to enact, I’m angry and ashamed to be represented by the current U.S. government. His complete denial of the existence of climate change and his lack of support for programs like the EPA has made me feel discouraged about our country’s future environmental policies. However, seeing all of the people committed to saving the planet at the People’s Climate March a few weeks ago renewed my hope for the future. After feeling so alone in my concerns, and helpless to enact real change, it was inspiring to see so many people fighting for the same things that I want.

With my experiences encountering natural beauty in places like our national parks, it saddens me that people are willing to destroy the environment for economic benefits. Fracking, mining, and oil spills, have certainly damaged much of our environment, but there is still so much worth saving.

I hope that the globe can come together to fight climate change and environmental degradation in time to prevent more irreversible damage from being done. I will fight for your right to have clean water and air, and I promise to do my best to protect Earth’s amazing biodiversity for you to experience in the future.

Mom

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?

Is the world really polluted?

 

To My Fellow Two-Spirits,

Thank you — Thank you — without you, I would not hear butterflies singing, without you, I would not understand black bear humor, or the creativity of jays planning their breakfast, without you, I would not feel flora whispers of long-lived wisdom on the back of my neck while sitting in Padmasana.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I promise to encourage myself and others to recycle more.
