Dear future children,

There is a lot happening in the world right now, and it concerns me for the future. Our new president, Donald Trump, has embodied values and ideas that don’t align with mine. The environment isn’t being taken as priority among the leaders of the world. Climate change and environmental degradation seem to be at an all time high. There are children across the globe that don’t have access to food and clean drinking water, while others live in excess. Forests are being cut down, and many species face extinction due to human action. With all of this, I don’t want you to worry, because despite the odds, I have faith and motivation that the world will become a better place. With all of the individuals who are consumed by selfishness, there are ten more who devote their lives to helping. I hope we can learn to live with the environment instead of against it. I hope that we can learn to support one another. I hope that we can care for the plants and animals that we share our space with. I promise, that wherever I end up, I will try my best to make these changes happen. For the people, the planet, the animals, and of course…for you!

Love,

Mom

To what we’ve overcome.

The first step would be in overcoming ourselves. Because whether we end up fading into obscurity, or thriving in prosperity, we will overcome ourselves.
