Dear future kid(s),
I want you to know that I am not just entering the environmental field because it is something that makes me happy, I’m doing it because the whole world enjoys a chance to enjoy life.
As much as it might scare me as a parent, I’ll let you and your friends go play in the woods. I’ll just be glad you have woods to play in.
As much as I might want to my favorite type of green beans in the garden, I’ll let you pick your favorite kind to plant instead, I’ll just be glad we have workable soil.
As much as I might want to go home after a long day at the beach, I’ll try to wait just a little longer, and remember that I should be thankful you have clean water to swim in.
There’s a lot of directions this world can go in, and I’m hoping to hep make it one that we can enjoy together for the rest of our lives. After all, if you have kids, I would definitely like to meet my grandchildren.
