Dear Future Hannah,

Right now I have just finished up a class about environmental justice. The world at this point in time is at a very pivotal moment when it comes to environmental responsibility and protection.

Trump was elected President last fall and is making threats to cut the EPA, pull the United States out of the Paris Agreement and continuously refuses to acknowledge the legitimacy of climate change science. If he does not begin to make significant changes in his policy towards the environment, I fear that by the time you read this it may be too late to save ecosystems, refurbish biodiversity or replenish fresh water supply.

These concepts seem more and more real as I watch the death of the Great Barrier Reef and see as peoples are soon to be displaced because of rising ocean water levels destroying their lands.

I hope that by the time you read this the world is turning a more positive way. If it isn’t, I plead to you, as a last chance call to action, to get involved and push for significant change and reform. I fear that by the time you read this it will be too late, however I am hoping that you have already made your mark towards progress in social and environmental justice.

Please understand that today and every day that we sit by and do nothing, we are unconsciously contributing to the degradation of our surroundings. So please, continue the fight for justice and continue to push for educated policymakers.

Our Shared Promise

I will act today so you may have a healthy earth to live on.

 

Dear Ellie,

My heart is an ocean of love for all the children facing a life of climate catastrophe.

 

Dear future generations,

Past generations took all the trees, polluted all the water, fished all the fish, and hunted all the animals so that there’s almost nothing nice left.

 

To My Future Child(ren),

The fact that you are reading this means that you would know the answer to a question that has kept me up at night more often than I would like to admit: Did I make you proud?

 

Dear Future,

I asked you, the future , to help us as well, to preserve our only planet that can give us life, that can let us watch anime, go to the beach, smell flowers, run through the meadow, listen to our songs, be in a concert, and let us live.

 

For my most dear and only daughter,

And I know life more fully because of you whom I live on through. 

 

Dear Jackson,

I feel deeply that it is my moral obligation as your Mom to protect your future and allow you to inherit a clean and healthy planet.

 

Dear girls,

I love you and I care deeply about your future.

I think every parent believes that their child’s future is worth protecting – because I know the power of this force in me and what I am willing to do.

 

Dear Lillyana,

I will continue to work to make the Earth a cleaner and safer place for you to grow and explore.

 

Dear loved ones in the future,

Even if it pains me to imagine how things are back home in Puerto Rico at the moment, I know things will flourish again. The land will heal, but we need to help it.

 

Dear Kids,

I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.
