Dear grandchild,

There is a place on this planet called the Amazon, and I don’t mean the online shopping site (is that still a thing in your time?). It’s the world’s largest rainforest, a living miracle that is teeming with life. It is vast, mysterious and wondrous… and it is threatened. I have never been there, though I breathe its air every day. That’s because the Amazon is a key piece of regulating the world’s weather patterns, or at least it was in my day. I hope it is in yours as well.

dear future people (:

I am writing this message to you guys. When I look outside my window today, I see a beautiful world that others and myself call “home sweet home.” The trees glimmering in warm sunlight, the air stirring a cool breeze, and the water flowing down rivers are parts of our home Mother Earth.
