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.

From,
Ryan

To my children – Chase, Maya and Harlan

I hope that we manage to change the system really soon, while there is still time. So that you are not left with the mess, and trying to fix something that you didn’t cause. I hope we figured out a way to be kind, and caring for others who will suffer more than us. A way to let go of the greed and look at ways we can help others rather than take from them.

 

Dear Kaydence,

I will keep trying Kaydence, I promise. And I hope we can look back together in 2050 and smile, knowing that our Earth is healthy once again.
