I promise that I will change my behavior to benefit our trees.

Dear Future Me,

I love taking long walks through the woods with my dog. He enjoys being taken off the leash and running around chasing his favorite tennis ball. Seeing him happy makes me happy.

The woods have always been one of my favorite places to be. It brings me serenity and helps me stay connected with nature. But, a lot of our actions are impacting the trees, such as our diet. I want to be able to enjoy the beautiful and healthy woods in the future, just like I do now with my dog.

I promise that I will change my behavior to benefit our trees. I will eat less meat to reduce the amount of forests being cut down for ranches and agriculture. I will be sure to vote for people in power who consider and act upon the environmental issues. I will use less paper. And, I promise I will plant a tree.

Dear Kai and Leah,

I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.

What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?

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.
